I've said many times...my job is too good to be true. I work at Artifex 323. Which is a very cool design studio that consists of myself and the owner, Jessica. As with any graphic design studio, we get to do some very cool projects and some luke-warm projects :) I love it all though. Truly. Do South Magazine is our client and we get to have the most fun -creatively speaking- designing the magazine layout from cover to cover. This local magazine has been around for a bit more than four years and we picked up the design in October of 2014. Something fun for me has been that I've gotten the chance to design the DIY project - so I get to produce the piece from start to finish including the layout in the publication...here's a peek at some of the projects...
I included the facing page above- to note that we do a big majority of the ad design in this publication as well. I did the Basinger and Gallivanting ad design with the direction of the client and editor.
This holiday DIY was fun because I snuck in some calligraphy. The "Spice" in the title was done by hand and I incorporated some fun little tags as well. The "Sparkle and Shine" page was one of my favorite pages I've designed. Loved the opportunity to use GLITTER! (I hate glitter in real life though :)
I dearly love this project and was so excited to have it picked up for the magazine.
