Collide Magazine


These layouts are pages from my design work done for the Azusa Pacific Student Magazine.

After designing the layouts for The Clause Student Newspaper for four years they expanded to include a student magazine along with their newspaper. I applied for and was accepted to be the first art director of this student led magazine. Firstly I began designing a logo combining the fonts Times and Helvetica Neue to stand for design style with an iconic font as well as the symbol for journalism and many reputable publications. I was then charged with the photo editing and complete design of the 24-page publication on a bi-semester cycle.

Because the goal was to include articles with weight and integrity along with an eye catching design style the use of white space and typography design was essential to the impactful stories written. In total four issues were designed in the 2010-2011 school year.
