These spreads were created for a Magazine Design course at Emerson College. The project asked students to redesign a defunct magazine. I chose Blue, an indie travel magazine that focused on extreme sports, unique locations, and personal essays. Blue was well-known for its experimental graphic design, bold colors, and unique format. The objective of the assignment was to study the original magazine’s aesthetic in order to replicate and improve upon it. My redesign embraced the playful graphic design of the original, while modernizing it.
