Design and production of corporate communications materials. Photography by Derek Norris.
Aboriginal Times 2003-2004
Design and production of 32 to 64 page magazine including redesign of magazine logo and application to web portal; magazine format and typography; advertising layouts; cover illustrations or photographs (except editorial and advertising photography above). The budget and deadlines were always extremely limited and hamstrung by picayune, self-imposed, often bizarre obstacles. This branding project also included the installation and development of the web portal, aboriginaltimes.com.
The prior magazine was frankly, an unmitigated disaster. Sad to say the publisher moved away from this layout and grid system. This design is honest and direct.
The portraits were supplied by the stringers. All the other graphics are mine save the photo of the mocassins by Roland Bellerose, the publisher. The layout, typography, portrait illustrations of political leaders, illustration of the weightlifter on the top of the world, photo of the mask and illustration of the blackboard are my work as was the assembly of the magazine into 16 page signatures to pdf from QuarkXpress, an application I have been using since 1988 and version 1.
