Next is an online and seasonal print magazine features artworks from emerging visual artists nominated by previous artists. The first artist’s work of each season is selected by our editors, and the following work is to be nominated by the artist. The art direction is keeping the most minimal design to avoid affecting the voice of artworks. Therefore, on work pages, layouts are mostly accomplished by dynamic grid systems and typography.
The rectangle of the logo mimics viewfinders of cameras, which smartly interacts with the word "NEXT." The proportion of the rectangle is not fixed. It is flexible to apply to different platforms and products. Despite its variations on proportions, the logo still keeps its high recognizability through the unique interaction of the text and the rectangle.
