among the commercial pull-outs published by bamboo, this one gained permanent, stand-alone status as a pair of periodicals produced for the flooring and surfaces company portobello: ‘trends’ and ‘moda’ (fashion).
like most commercial pull-outs, these followed very closely the graphic design and structure of their parent publication, bamboo, without straying too far from the tree.
what most identifies and differentiates the two periodicals, both in relation to each other and to other publications of the type, are the covers.
The lower section of the covers is page-wide, just like on bamboo, and we made the titles as large as space would allow.
‘trends’ always leads with a large photograph that takes up most of the front and back covers, while ‘moda’ runs a composition made of smaller pictures and a geometrical mural or tile-like panel.
