For this editorial assignment, Jose Fresneda & Justin Colt asked students to conceptualize and design a magazine of their choice. “This project is more than just a typographic exercise, as we wanted students to pitch magazine ideas that were a reflection of their own interests, strengths and personalities.”
“Over a four week time period, we saw these magazines evolve from an idea and a few spreads, to a full blown publication. The end results were surprising and exciting from both a design and conceptual standpoint–spanning across ideas such as a millennial art quarterly, a deep dive exploration of fear and phobias, traditional Chinese recipes, an insider look at stay-at-home fashion and aesthetics, and eggs.”
The New Fear Magazine focuses on exploring the fears of modern people, planning different themes for each issue based on All Phobia from A-Z, organized by Dr. Fredd Culbertson. This example shows issue 37 – The fear of large things.
