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."
Ben has been editor of Total Politics since August 2009. He was political editor when the magazine launched in 2008 and was locked in a Downing Street cupboard after interviewing Gordon Brown for the first issue. A Cumbrian born in Scotland, Ben has interviewed political leaders and politicians from Britain and around the world. He now puts most energy into ensuring Total Politics entertains, informs and covers political life in Britain better than anyone else.
Special Sections Editor
Anoosh joined Total Politics as Special Sections Editor in June 2012. Previously, she reported and blogged for TIME magazine, and has been attempting to purge her writing of American spellings ever since leaving the
organization organisation. Prior to that, she wrote features for the Telegraph and its magazine, ranging from interviews with millionaire entrepreneurs to psychoanalysing Kermit the Frog. When pursuing journalism after finishing university in 2011, the news appeared to be chasing her, rather than the other way round, with the News of the World folding days after she began interning at News International, and later that summer - when reporting for her local, the Ealing Gazette - she walked slap-bang into the Ealing riots. She has yet to decide whether this pattern is a curse or a blessing.
