The design of Architecture MN magazine is intended to engage a broad public audience of design-philes, influencers, and allied fields. The masthead and cover images create a strong presence on the newsstand and online. Tilka Design has been working with publisher AIA Minnesota since 2005. 



Under Tilka Design's art direction, the magazine has won 15 gold, 3 silver and 3 bronze awards for design excellence in multiple categories from the Minnesota Magazine and Publications Association. The AIGA Minnesota Design Show has additionally recognized the magazine with an Excellence Award.


"Our relationship with Tilka Design has been a collaborative partnership from the start. We’re in dialogue with their gifted designers from issue planning through every stage of production, and that has yielded a giant step forward in the quality and sophistication of our magazine.”
