Tonko’s interview was a special challenge to layout and publish in Hopelessly Romantic magazine. The interview was done in Japanese, then translated for English readers. To further HRM’s status as an international magazine, the piece was printed in both languages. Some of the challenges this presented include needing extra special care for proofreading to ensure error free printing, choosing fonts that were aesthetically compatible in both languages, being sure that there weren’t any unwieldy paragraph breaks in the Japanese version of the interview.
Both the singer and the editor were elated with the spread!
