- Lifelounge Magazine - Editorial Design
After five years of building an international reputation for publishing the best of action sports and popular culture content online, in 2005 Lifelounge decided to take the plunge into print media, launching Lifelounge Magazine. Initially distributed for free, the magazine rapidly garnered a huge following, boasting a 100% pick up rate and a slew of praises for its unique editorial style and design aesthetic.
From it's inception up until late 2009, I was the music editor for the magazine, writing features and coordinating contributors for both the printed magazine and Lifelounge.com. Artists and bands interviewed included Public Enemy, Cut Copy, Matthew Herbert, !!!, LCD Soundsystem, TV On The Radio, MIA, Liars, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and many more. Additionally I produced photography and design for each issue, alongside art director and typographer Luke Lucas.
Below are a series of spreads I designed over a number of issues. In most cases I also wrote the feature in the spreads, which should still be available to read online at Lifelounge.com.
