I just recently finished a typography class this last quarter that dealt with creating a magazine. I chose to design an art quarterly that highlights artists from different spectrums of art. A deliberate Life, written by Kaelan Smith takes 10 pages in the beginning of the quarterly. I chose a simple clean design template that would work with his story. I feel it came across with success in this project. For the two photo spreads a local artist, Anna Lee Lanier kindly granted me the permission to use her work. Amazing photos! Last but not least a humble native New Yorker Andy McFood. An interview was conducted and put in with photos from past to present artwork. As for the construction of the quarterly its an accordion fold, bound with handmade archival paper for the pages. All design was done by yours truly as well as binding, printing and slicing, man was this time consuming!
This project was to implement the full definition of a word conveying the 3 different viewpoints through typographic exploration. Only with the critical viewpoint (metaphor), imagery is introduced to allow the viewer to question the meaning behind the word.
This poster was designed to bring light to the large destruction and pollution that is currently happening in Alberta Canada. The Oil refineries and land being used by Shell Canada and other Oil corporations is the size of Florida and is destroying the near by rivers as well as the Boreal forest. Which is the largest forest in all of Canada to date.
