Artistry, The Magazine

  • Artistry, The Magazine
    William Morris spread
  • This was a project for Design Layout class. The problem was to research and write an article about a famous designer and then to create a magazine in order to present it. The magazine was to consist of a cover, table of contents, masthead and a two page spread with the story about the designer.

    I chose William Morris because I have always been impressed with the breadth of his work and his impact on culture, art, typography, small press publishing, design, society and his efforts to to bring art from simply something for the bourgeoisie and nobility and make it something for everyday life and the common man.
