Academic Matters is a print and online journal that explores issues of relevance to higher education in Ontario, other provinces in Canada, and globally. It is a forum for original and engaging discussion of current and future trends in post-secondary education. The print version is published two times a year and is mailed to 18,000 professors, academic librarians, and others interested in higher education issues across Canada. The web version enjoys a large and varied audience from around the world.
Neglia Design has been designing the print version of the journal since 2008. The first thing we did was establish and create an original cover illustration style that is unique to the journal. This style allows for endless flexibility in terms of subject matter while being consistent with the illustrated brand. Besides being visually attractive, it has defined the publication for over a decade and is still going strong.
