novum 01.15 »non-profit«

The main focus of our January issue is »non-profit« and the team of Portugese Maan Design Studio ( provided a cover design that interprets the topic in a very appealing way. »The  Non-Profit concept is determined by connections, human trust, exchanges and communication. With a minimal approach the cover design is based on a moiré pattern. By superimposing two halftone grids 0º to 50º we managed to create an interference visual pattern that gave us the idea of two dependent structures from each other. The metallic pantone is to metaphorically represent money (copper penny) contrasting with subtle colors — we were able to create a classy look, after all it also should represent the beginning of 2015.
