TV Guide

TV Guide Change is in the air, and it's affecting everyone! From Glen Karpowich, Assistant AD at TV Guide, a report about their cover story on stands now:

We feature President Obama and his wife, Michelle on the cover and the issue includes a 7-page story on how President Obama and his Presidency will impact America, and possibly even change TV.

The opening spread features a powerful, but fun photo of Barack which I felt suited exactly what we wanted to say about him and the piece.  The following 3 pages take the reader on a journey of some of Barack's milestones in his political journey, from his early days at Occidental College in Los Angeles to his acceptance speech on November 5th. The last 2 pages of the feature focus on photos from past Presidents and how they watched and impacted television during their time as President. I had a great time coming up with the layouts and working with the photo editors here at TV Guide, specifically Ariel Braverman and Nancy Schwartz who did extensive research and a fantastic job to find all of these great moments in Obama's life, and also the editor and writer of the story Greg Evans and Stephen Battaglio.  Everyone did a fantastic job coming together to make this feature story look great!   


NEW WORK is a new recurring feature. We'll welcome anything that's gone to the printer recently, something you're especially proud of and think might be inspiring to the membership and readers of Grids. We'll note the credits and the publication and shine a little light on the latest and greatest in publication design.

Please reduce your layouts to no larger than 1200 pixels wide and don't forget to include all relevant credits and a little background (if you feel like). Send your submissions to and we'll post them as we get them.
