Resonate Magazine

A music magazine designed, written and photographed by myself. Featuring articles written by myself alongside content from a combination of local musicians and enthusiasts, the magazine looks at how music is enjoyed by people in different ways. The magazine gives a glimpse into people's connection with music, the records they hold dear and the memories they'll always hold sacred.

The challenge

To source and write content for my magazine, art directed and designed by myself. Producing a magazine that reflects the culture and music scene that inspired the work; without losing authenticity or artistic expression in the process.

the outcome

The design represents the loud energy and aesthetic within much of music culture printed at A3 and includes a pull-out double-sided poster.

Having fun

The magazine was an opportunity to have fun without constraints or restrictions. Dramatic typography was let loose on the page, giving the freedom to dance across an A2 spread.
