Design and art direction from the third issue of Escapades magazine.

We had a lot of fun with this issue, which features the debut of a new department called Dossier. The editors and I had been toying with the notion of an intermediary section prefacing the features, ideal for articles whose length was too long for Compass (our primary front-of-book department, typically single-pages) and too short to constitute a feature article. We couldn’t seem to find the space in previous issues, but some in-between-length stories and the absence of an Insiders interview (another of our typical departments) made issue 3 the perfect introductory vessel.

I pitched the name “Dossier” attached to the sub-line “Global Travel Intel,” a somewhat intentionally ambiguous descriptor that could potentially house a miscellany of topics. Rather than employ a departmental icon, like the one we use in Compass, I developed a simple type header, drawing on the dots and dashes that decorate the alphabets of foreign languages, a nod to our international audience and the obvious travel nature of the publication. There’s also a fleeting hint of morse code, reinforcing the “intel” bit in the section sub-line. The opening Dossier article displays the type mark large along the side, always against white, noticeable enough to indicate the arrival of a new section. The subsequent stories use it smaller, over the photo itself.



All in all, very happy with how this issue came out. We had an unfortunate miscommunication regarding the printing deadline, leaving us scrambling to complete roughly half of the magazine in a period of three days. Once more for emphasis: Three. Days. Hats off to Nasser, our new publisher Ahmed, Sean Horn (who illustrated the portrait for our Bourdain opener), Chandra, Larry, and everyone else who burned the midnight oil and worked across a nine-hour time difference to get this sucker out.



On another note, today officially marks my one-year anniversary of working independently, an admittedly minor accomplishment I’m happy to say has arrived without any instance of bankruptcy, lawsuit, or mental breakdown. Here’s to another year—

Creating GIFs
By Jorn van Dijk
A great way of showcasing interactions or animations on the web is by using GIFs. Compared to video files, they’re relatively small in size. Here’s a short tutorial on how to export great looking GIFs.
1. You can use QuickTime from Apple to record directly from your screen. Open it and go to ‘File -> New Screen Recording’. Make sure to deselect 'Show Mouse Clicks in Recording' from the Screen Recording window.

2. It’s best to keep your recordings short. Think a bit up front about how you want to compose your recording. Background, perspective and dimensions are valuable presentation assets. Keep your recording under 5 seconds and your GIF will stay reasonable in size. QuickTime will export the video in 60FPS when you save the video as a .mov file.

3. Photoshop is great at exporting GIFs. Open the .mov file and go to ‘File -> Save for Web’. Select GIF as the file extension, and you’ll be presented with the settings from the screenshot above. Your GIF will look best if you set Colors to 256 and Dithering to ‘Diffusion' with a value of 100%. Keep an eye on the file size shown in the bottom left of the preview window. The optimal settings are different for every GIF, so play around until you're satisfied with the result.
Pro Tip: Try rendering your video in 30FPS for smaller file sizes. In Photoshop, go to ‘Export -> Render Video' to change the frame rate.
Final step: hit save and you’re done!
