brief

Design the latest issue from a periodical magazine of your own creation. The magazine must be unique, the content of which is entirely up to you. The magazine must appeal to the target audience, and be designed with a clear link to its subject matter.

concept

My magazine, twelve, is a monthly exploration of the heart and soul of blues music. Each issue takes an in-depth look at blues musicians and delves into the history of a genre that has transcended time, resonating with generations and weaving its indelible tapestry into the fabric of our collective unconscious. Articles and interviews offer the reader intimate glimpses into the lives and careers of those who have dedicated themselves to the blues, sharing their stories, inspirations, and the challenges they’ve faced along the way. The current issue I have designed (a limited edition issue that includes a ‘record sleeve’ that holds the magazine) brings together four legendary musicians: Junior Wells, Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters and B.B. King.
