Sam Macrory, previously Political Editor of House magazine, became Editor of Total Politics in May 2013.
Antonello is an Italian graphic designer and has being working in London for more than 13 years now. In Rome, he worked for the design of the Olympics bid and various other publications. He then worked at GT and Diva magazine in London. At the end of summer 2010, he joined Total Politics and constructed the redesign of the monthly magazine. He now designs it each month. Total Politics has been a great inspiration for Antonello; the magazine needed an evolution from a corporate publication to a more lifestyle magazine with a modern design and new bearing.
"When I first saw Total Politics I felt that the magazine was in need of support and clear direction on how to illustrate basic words with clear design.
“I take inspiration from everywhere and I apply those influences to my work and in this instance for the design of Total Politics. The name itself, Total Politics, is a source of inspiration since it holds all the colours of the British politics.
“I wanted to simplify the magazine with my design – giving a distinctive character to the various parts of the publication and supply the readers with the right signpost of each section, then furnish the pages with linear and brand new fonts and custom-made photography.
“I hope that with the redesign of the mag and the website we have more people following us."
