This Richmond magazine feature consisted of three different stories: Sophie Meredith's suffrage history, past and present women's spaces, and profiles of notable women in Richmond. I created a cohesive design scheme that carried throughout and was also used by the creative director on the cover. I used Photoshop to create a unique hand drawn look for the images of the profiled women.
This feature in Richmond magazine was about the VCU Institute for Contemporary Art. It was under construction at the time the story was published, so there was limited art available to illustrate the concepts. I worked with the editor to create infographic sidebars, adding more visual interest. The overall look was inspired by the architectural lines of the building and the museum’s brand colors.
I organized this photoshoot with a freelance photographer and designed a fun “candy shop” look for the dessert spreads—pun intended ;)
This feature in Richmond magazine was a philosophical take on the issue of whether certain monuments should stay or be removed. Since the story was rather conceptual, I came up with a design that wouldn’t distract the reader too much so the words could speak for themselves. I added a lens flare effect to the title and pull quotes, giving the feeling of a shadow cast by a monument in the sun. I also created abstract monument illustrations on simplified pedestals, and used an orange circle element behind them to further the idea of colossal statues.
Richmond magazine has an annual Top Dentists feature and list within its smaller R•Health publication. For the July 2017 issue, I worked with one of the winning dentists and a photographer to create an approachable cover photo. I also collaborated with an illustrator for the opener image and designed the layout for this issue.
The theme of this Richmond magazine publication was eggs. I developed a simple “yellow yolk” design to unify all of the stories. A favorite element of this design was in the “Good Eggs” article, where the lines around the circle rotated around like a clock to correspond with the order of meals throughout the day. I also did the egg carton illustrations and lettering.
For this cover story for Richmond magazine, I designed a cohesive look throughout this feature's many sections. I pulled certain paragraphs from the main stories and expanded them into graphic elements for a more interesting layout.
This was the July 2018 cover feature for Richmond magazine. In addition to a running list of some of the best BBQ joints in the region, I also had to organize several smaller articles into a cohesive, but not crowded, design.
A special publication of Richmond magazine, I incorporated my hand lettering throughout this issue to tie the stories together.
This Richmond magazine feature consisted of two different stories plus small profiles of people running throughout. Since there were many different pieces to this layout, I used a stark black and white color scheme with heavy black bars to separate the information and guide the reader. The yellow highlights help to unify the design.
This Richmond magazine feature had several long sidebars to incorporate with the main story. I used color to separate blocks of text so the reader can easily distinguish the different sections. I also worked with the editor to visually interpret some of the facts and figures from the story into an infographic.
The Richmond magazine food editor and I worked together to create an entire issue centered around this single theme. I carried colors and typefaces throughout to unify everything. I assigned photos to freelancers and I also illustrated the "Weird Science" tongue infographic.
I created a fresh look for this annual publication produced by Richmond magazine. The design centered around the idea of a pile of presents.
After seeing the text for this Richmond Bride Magazine feature, the editor and I decided on a "survival guide" look full of highlighters, sticky notes, etc. I communicated often with the illustrator to incorporate spot illustrations into my design.
For this Richmond magazine feature, I came up with a light-hearted design for what could have been boring pages full of charts. I paid close attention to organizing and highlighting content to help the reader sort through all of the information. I incorporated elements from the creative director's cover concept (the small doodles and the "Top High Schools" title text).
