We’ve had the pleasure of taking a few trips to California this summer to work on an exciting project with the Stanford Graduate School of Business.

Seek, the science research magazine from The Rockefeller University, won a silver award in the Editorial Design category from CASE (Council for the Advancement and Support of Education).

We met the next generation of Seek contributors, editors, artists, and art directors this weekend at The Rockefeller University’s “Science Saturday,” an annual science festival for children in grades K–8 and their families.

Kevin Whipple’s work for Columbia Journalism Review  has been chosen for American Illustration 38.

Point Five and our wonderful collaborators received several honors for our work on Columbia Journalism Review at the Society of Publication Designers 54th Annual Design Competition. Pictured: The Threats Issue, cover and opener art by Melinda Beck.

Columbia Journalism Review is a finalist for the 2019 National Magazine Award for General Excellence—the most prestigious honor given by the American Society of Magazine Editors.

The Perception Issue of Columbia Journalism Review explores “what the press looks like from the outside—and what we misread about ourselves.” Thinking about the subjective nature of perception guided our experimental approach to this issue’s art direction: we gave six very different artists an open-ended prompt to depict how the press is perceived. Artists: Edmon de Haro, Serge Bloch, Ellen Weinstein, Vivienne Flesher, Dadu Shin, Lincoln Agnew

A Sense of Place: Our February issue of PCMA Convene is here. We just love the scenes JooHee Yoon created for the cover and opener.
