Shades Magazine

The brief

To provide a set of layout templates for the publication. Since this

is an arts organisation these layouts needed to be image-led, to

showcase the visual work of contributors.

What I did

SoN had some basic branding – a typeface and a logo.

I took this and built on it, adding the vertical line feature on the

titles, and choosing a different typeface for the body.

I implemented a grid that would allow a lot of flexibility, so that

each spread could be customised to the work of the artist/author

but still remain consistent.
