vignelli publication.

digital publication, 2019

My typographic journal publication incorporated Massimo Vignelli’s “The Vignelli Canon”. I was inspired by independent art magazines, such as Frankie Magazine. I used my own photographs and selected the pastel purple colour palette from a favourite photograph of my niece’s jumper and built the graphic identity around it. This softened the black and white of the rest of the publication. I enjoyed experimenting with typeface, increasing tracking, skewing orientation and mostly individually arranging characters to create a ‘wave’ flow effect. I hand drew markings and text which I edited in Photoshop which lessened the intensity of the text heavy pages. Combined, all these elements enhance a playful flow between the spreads.
