afar magazine rebrand

Comprehensive rebranding of the travel magazine Afar. Includes an updated masthead, cover with spine, and three cover story spreads. Words and photos are not my property. Black lines in the spreads indicate page folds! 

Redesigned cover page including updated masthead and spine.


Evidence that I didn't just use magic

Type Studies

Four combinations of type I created as I experimented with the title and tagline for the masthead. 

Cover Thumbnails

Initial ideas working out where to fit the masthead, story titles, and the darn barcode!

Cover Roughs

Tighter compositions created in Indesign playing around with my ideas from the thumbnails.

Story Spread Roughs

Two examples of initial ideas and layouts for each of the cover story speads.
