Behind the Design of Bloomberg Businessweek

Lecture with Creative Director Richard Turley
Date: March 19, 2014
Time: 19:00
Location: Gestalten Space, Sophie-Gips-Höfe, Sophienstraße 21, 10178 Berlin

Gestalten is proud to present an evening talk with Richard Turley, creative director of Bloomberg Businessweek.

When Turley joined the respected magazine in 2010, his mission was nothing less than to reinvent it. Since then, the magazine has won numerous awards and accolades from the Art Directors Club, D&AD, the Society of Publication Designers (including Magazine of the Year 2012), and The Society for News Design to name but a few. 

Each week they translate the complex, button-down, data-driven world of business, politics, and economics into an endlessly surprising visual package; featuring bold, fresh, and often provocative covers that capture the imagination and mood of the nation.

In this evening talk moderated by Gestalten’s Sven Ehmann, Turley will share highlights from his impactful body of work as well as his thoughts on igniting creativity amid tight deadlines. “While everyone else feels limited by the lack of time for a project, I find it very liberating, as you do not have the burden of over analysis. It is all instinctive”, says Turley.

Don’t miss your chance to hear this award-winning creative director give insight into the design process at Bloomberg Businessweek, which doesn't look like a traditional news weekly but continually strives to be informative, seductive, and unexpected.

Read Richard Turley’s “The Blessing of Deadlines” essay and learn more about Bloomberg Businessweek in Gestalten’s book Designing News: Changing the World of Editorial Design and Infographics by Francesco Franchi.

This event will be held in English.

About the host

Richard Turley started out by designing his college magazine together with Jimmy Turrell. The magazine won a student design competition and the prize was an internship at the Guardian newspaper. He stayed there on and off for the next 10 years or so, working in different departments; during this time he assisted Mark Porter (the then creative director) on a number of projects—including the redesign of the newspaper, which launched in 2005—and after the redesign was appointed art director of the daily features magazine, G2.

Four years ago he moved to New York to redesign BusinessWeek (now Bloomberg Businessweek). Since then the magazine has won awards from the Art Directors Club, D&AD, SPD (including Magazine of the Year 2012), SND, ASME , Print, and AIGA. The team was also awarded Magpile’s 2012 Best Magazine Design and in 2013, Creative Review named them Design Studio of the Year.
