'Art direction,' design, and custom lettering for Interview Magazine. In early 2018 I helped Richard Turley in his pitch to redesign the magazine, incorporating hand-lettering and a loose victorian-inspired template at an oversize scale. During the initial design period I drew the logo lettering, which is based on the old logo lettering. Since launch we have shifted the design seasonally, adapting our display type and overall strategy to match changing tastes, tones, and cultural moments.
Each issue is designed with Jack Vhay with/under Richard Turley, our Design Director. Current EIC: Mel Ottenberg. Lots of talented people make the words, photos and fashion happen. Check out the Interview website 'masthead' for more. Below is a survey of work, which is by no means complete.
