Details was a monthly lifestyle and fashion magazine for hip young men. It had a new editor who wanted a brand new visual direction. We decided to give the magazine the feel of the old Blue Note album covers designed by Reid Miles. All the typography, design, color and formatting reflected that look, as did much of the imagery. We also added in visual references to various 50s, 60s and 70s cultural iconography, including album covers, movie posters, TV shows, book covers, etc.
Details had an art and photo staff of 14. Designers included John Giordani, Alden Wallace, Heather Jones, and Wyatt Mitchell. The photo director was Greg Pond.
