I recently completed a major overhaul of . I have been designing covers for the semi-annual literary journal for several seasons, and finally had the opportunity last year to tackle the interior as well. The result is a more integrated package, which I think is a nice continuation of the style developed over the last several issues. The new covers are printed on a nice, toothy uncoated stock, and the books are bound with printed endpapers that repeat the pattern and color of the issue number (circle) that wraps around the spine.
#35, the first issue to be housed in the re-design was fortunate enough to include work by Kara Walker and Chuck Close.

Featured in AIGA's 2009 Best of New England (BoNE) Show.

To be featured in Print magazine's Regional Design Annual, 2009

Thanks. This was really one of those rare projects where I felt like nothing was sacrificed. I have a great working relationship with the editor, and I think that's what makes all the difference.
