Clap magazine is a student project made for the Editorial Design course at Elisava. Clap is a monographic magazine, where the main topic is music and neighboring themes. So every issue is about a topic that can relate to the music in a direct or indirect way. As the identity of the museum has a permanent reference to Catalan culture, and the building is located in Barcelona, the magazine has both international and national content.
The first one talks about music and cinema, and it has some interviews to movies soundtrack authors, film directors, photographic reports about foley effects and instruments viewed from inside, articles about how films are developed following music and so on.
We wanted a cohesive but unique personality for the magazine style, so we continue using the same typography used in the Taral·larà identity, but a more legible one for the articles. Color, photography, and illustration are much more richer than in the identity, because of the possibilities given by the magazine’s format and content.
