First City Review

  • The editor of this new literary review had already developed a nameplate and a web site with another designer who, unfortunately, could not continue the project.

    My main goal was to respect the aesthetic already established. Another concern was making the journal readable while keeping the page count within budget.

    The publication received a favorable review from Philadelphia Weekly’s Liz Spikol.
