This was a college breif which required that I create a 25th anniversary subscriber's only edition of world renowned typography magazine, Baseline. It was an eight page publication, or mini - magazine, which was used to demonstrate the overall look and feel of the whole would-be magazine.
I found this project particularly enjoyable as it allowed my to utilize various skills beyond just layout and typesetting, and literally get my hands dirty. All of the images found in the spreads are my own, with the execption of those taken of Brad Vetter's work and the man himself. All other images including background and cover images were taken by me. This allowed me to go a step further and give my own personal touch to the issue, while staying true to the understated creative elegance that Baseline is known for. I even letterpressed the title 'Baseline' using wooden letters on a machine much like those discussed in the main story.
The fact that the headline story was about Brad Vetter, a very cool printmaker from the US, was an added bonus, which helped to add to the overall feeling of warmth and timeless craftmanship that I was trying to convey throughout the publication.
