Journal of the Month: Communication Arts

Published by Coyne & Blanchard, Inc. six times per year, Communication Arts is a bimonthly magazine which Hewes Library subscribes to in print only, with issues dating back to 2007.

Communication Arts prides itself on being the go-to magazine for design, advertising, illustration, photography, interactive media, and typography.  It is the largest international trade journal of visual communications, and has been in publication since 1959.  Among a number of innovations, it was the first U.S. magazine printed by offset lithography and the first major design publication to launch a web presence.

The magazine hosts six creative competitions per year in graphic design, advertising, photography, illustration, typography, and interactive media.  They also host two websites: www.commarts.com and www.creativehotlist.com.  The publishers have established a foundation to increase diversity in visual communications.  The Foundation currently funds seventeen programs managed by educational institutions and non-profit trade organizations that help economically disadvantaged high school students develop portfolios to qualify for art school and provide college scholarships
