Reportage Photography, Writing, Independent Magazines and Graphic Design

Blog

Expect lots of wordy things - independent magazines primarily - with plenty of reportage photography and great bits of design. There will also be occasional pieces of written reportage stories. It all comes down to time.

Impressive Magazine Covers Project

We obviously love a good magazine. Given what has happened to the printed word industry in the digital age, more and more publications are ensuring they offer a product which looks and feels amazing - not just one that reads well.

In a disposable content era - and I'm somebody who produces #content for a living - taking the time out of your hectic schedule of refreshing social media feeds and TV to read a magazine needs to be worth your time. And money.

So, often, independent and major magazines are a thing of beauty. To achieve this, innovative graphic designers need to be employed. Step up Charles Williams, London based, who has shared some of his work on Behance and they're excellent.

Nice work.

Here's what he adds about this one, because there's a lot going on here,

"Most complicated brief EVER. For this project, Science mag, a US publication, wanted me to communicate "some of the sequence features and base modifications that modulate the many and diverse functions of RNA". I created a typographic rollercoaster with various events occurring along the type. I'm not going to attempt to break it down any further here as it is way complicated but you can read about it here. Good luck!"
