If you’ll recall a little while back we posted on the spicy new look of playboy.co.uk as both an exciting interpretation of a print magazine in online form, as well as a nod to the classic style of 60-70′s era.
As a result we were quite pleased when we caught a glimpse of the in class re-brand study by MFA student Alex Cornell. Though this takes Playboy in a significantly different direction business wise, it’s one that make a certain amount of sense. As we mentioned in our previous post, Playboy was a magazine that touted the female form as art (or at least something beautiful) rather than something dirty. So it makes a certain amount of sense for Playboy to cut back on nudity to the point where it’s a step beyond the Maxim level, but with MUCH better articles.
