Paste magazine is an award winning online magazine covering a wide breadth of music, movies, TV, games, books, design, tech and much more. I had the opportunity to design numerous publications that showcased trending music, movies, actors and musicians alike.
Approach: Each story and article's look and feel would need to be consistent throughout. The cover design would lead the way in how we design the proceeding pages. Each typeface, photography, color, accents and elements are specifically chosen to create a holistic visual design for that specific story.
Process: The design and flow of each page was achieved within a tight knit collaborative environment, sketching, wireframing and implementing with guidance from the Creative Director and AD, but i had the opportunity to take sole proprietorship for many of the designs and stories.
Challenges: I took away many good qualities and lessons from designing in this given domain; how can typography and photography work in good harmony and co-exist, how can i create a balanced look and feel throughout the experience, when is it too much or too little, to always study and fully submerse myself in each story and article before designing it.
