Ok, so DTE turned 400 in January. When it began, in 1992, no one gave it more than a few issues to survive…

I joined in 2002, and apart from a year and a bit of break in between, it’s been a fun ride. First a photograper, then a designer. It’s a great place to learn and grow, if you want to.

Our editor has written a piece on why this magazine. Read it if you have the time

Meanwhile, here’s an advert is designed for the 400th issue


and this one’s to announce the launch of the e-magazine, not yet approved, it’s at a ‘beta’ stage, the poster that is:


you must check it out here (incase you cant figure it out, take the mouse to the bottom right corner of the magazine to turn the page), and subscribe too

The old DTE website will soon get a make over too, we’ll be hosting fresh new stories, not found in the print version. So that will be fun. And we have an exhibiton lied up for early Feb. More on that later. All this to celebrate 400 issues of common sense. So celebrate, subscribe, and get others to subscribe 🙂

Put image and headline together, to create this. Searched for aircrafts in the US Navy in the 1950s, for the intro.

Enjoyed it all, going to add some more…

Once we decided on the paper, needed a new advert. Our earlier ads featured the chlorine-free papers.

The graphic wasn’t as difficult as I imagined, though i do feel I’ve cheated a bit, the folds should have led to inverted text. But there’s that much one can play around with a masthead. Unless you’re NatGeo, or Time

Full circle

Another last day scramble for a cover. The original idea was my managing editor Pradip’s, pages from a alphabet learning book, concept of relearning what we know about these animals. The idea evolved into the above, essentially because I only found a L=Lion page (T=telephone), and a Tiger drawing on a wall in Bandhavgarh. Combined these two images to create the cover.

A full circle in a sense, my first cover, a wildlife story too, was a wall painting concept
