I picked up a copy of the latest Bloomberg Businessweek this afternoon to see the touching and powerful Steve Jobs memorial issue. The entire magazine is dedicated to Jobs’s life and is a powerful tribute to his work. The issue is a wonderful example of top notch editorial design as I was pulled into the magazine and found myself reading every single page and every single article.
What’s even more amazing, Jobs died on Wednesday and this issue hit newsstands on Sunday, meaning the editorial team put together this entire issue in a matter of days which is an unbelievably tight deadline. Add to that, there is not one advertisement in the issue, every page is dedicated to telling Jobs’s story.
This issue is a great testament to beautiful editorial design and a fitting tribute to the man who gave us desktop publishing in the first place. This issue will sit on my shelf next to my favorite Steve Jobs magazine cover.
