Surging Horizon Magazine

One of the cornerstone projects and highlights of the graphic design program at SCCA was the magazine project. I chose to create a quarterly publication focusing on experimental music and art. This ranged from the performances of Survival Research Laboratories, to the academic sound research of the INA GRM, and the audio punishment of the international forefathers of industrial music. I established an audience and tone, created reader profiles, a style guide, type styles, live page area, and got down to business. With heavy photo treatment, audited content, a custom logo mark, and did some experimental type treatments to support the found content the magazine took form. After countless weeks of labor, the finished product was a hundred page work that is engaging and easy to read, yet maintains a somewhat austere tone throughout.
