Abstract [sv]

Todays travel trends go towards independence and self planning. If you need advice or help when performing your trip, there are several different series of guidebooks on the market and one of these series comes from the travel magazine Vagabond. This degree project concerns the redesigning of the travelguides of Vagabond, or to be precise: their cityguide over Istanbul. The purpose of the new design is to assure the resemblance between the guidebook and the magazine, as wanted by the Art Director of Vagabond Angelica Zander. Prior to the redesigning process preliminary studies that make up the fundamental ideas were made. Three other big titles of guidebooks on the market were analyzed, and in addition a great deal of focus – considering the final purpose – was put on the concept of magazine design. Some color psychology has also been studied to make out what a difference color makes in printed media and what power color can contribute with, when delivering the message. Finally redesign as a concept has been investigated to clarify why the way of expression should be renewed from time to time. The result is presented as spread examples from the cityguide over Istanbul. The new design is applied on the existing content and the result is supposed to appear as a miniature magazine.
