The magazine is staffed by volunteers, many are high schoolers who don't have design experience. Early issues of the magazine had tight borders, crowded layouts, and hard-to-read fonts.
I worked with the executive team to establish new layout guidelines: strict margins and gutters, a more legible and flexible font library, and a more comprehensive color palette. We also collaborated with the art team to create a custom illustration style to accompany articles that don't have accompanying photography.
I've also led presentations to the magazine team on subjects like typography, color combinations, and using inspiration.
