The Intelligent Lifestyle Magazine

Editor Francesco Franchi Reveals His Secrets to Success
Posted by Gestalten—04/2016

Since 2008, IL: Intelligence in Lifestyle has been published as a monthly magazine to supplement Il Sole 24 Ore, a popular Italian newspaper. The magazine has since established itself as a leader in innovative design and journalistic standards under the direction of art director Francesco Franchi. To celebrate the release of our new book The Intelligent Lifestyle Magazine—the first comprehensive monograph of Franchi’s popular magazine— met with the designer and journalist himself to find out what his secrets to success are.

The Intelligent Lifestyle Magazine is now available in Berlin and in the Gestalten webshop.
