Virginia Quarterly Review

I did all art direction, design and production for this award-winning journal from the University of Virginia. The magazine was nominated for a National Magazine Award for General Excellence while I was there. 

 

The template couldn't be adjusted (a redesign had already been paid for before I got there) so the greatest challenge of the job was finding illustrators and photographers willing to work for a fraction of typical editorial rates.

I also occasionally assigned and art directed photo shoots.

In a pinch, I also did some illustrations and photo-illustrations myself.
