Sharing an art direction role with Emily McGaughey, My team and I created a unique concept for the twelfth edition of Edinboro University's annual, award-winning student art publication, Chimera.
A grid of gradiated, desaturated CMYK values on the cover is pushed through the entire publication, front to back, as each page's color palette shifts slightly throughout the piece in a gradiation that is revealed on the edge of the pages when the reader slightly bends the book. All text an imagery fall strictly on the grid, and subtle, solid colored backgrounds compliment the artwork.
The final piece is cohesive but never repetitive and continues to bring in awards and accolades.
