GoodFood Magazine

The objective of this project was to design a magazine based on a single subject of interest. GoodFood Magazine is meant to be an everyday person's magazine for anything food related. GoodFood magazine is approachable, never entering the "food snob" realm, but still takes an in-depth look at good food and where it comes from.

MPLS Sailing Brochure

This is a redesign of the Minneapolis Park and Recreation brochure for sailing safety procedures at the Minneapolis Sailing Camp. New typography and a more streamlined layout were chosen, as well as full illustrations of all components of a boat and the techniques required to operate it safely. The final product was presented to the Park and Recreation department for consideration to be used for the coming summers.
