Pixel to Print is a magazine that showcases creative talent found online in a unique way. I wanted the layout to be different from most magazines, so the first issue would be contained inside a tote bag. With the popularity of online magazines at the moment, with this magazine, I wanted to show the benefits of print and how good it can be to hold something in your hands, rather than show it on a computer screen.
As the contents of the magazine were inside the bag, I used the front of the bag as the magazine cover. For this front cover I illustrated all the different things I had used during the project, CDs, computers, pencils, pens, etc. I put these illustrations around the simple logo I designed. I wanted the logo to be just typography, like most magazine titles are and I wanted it to be blocky and stand out.
For the artist interviews, I used a layout which I thought would show the artists work best. Each was a booklet, which contained two interviews from certain artists/designers. The booklets then unfolded to reveal a poster of one of the artists. I asked these artists and designers 'what does art and design mean to you?' and put each of their answers on a postcard. Once these postcards were turned over and placed together, they made an A2 poster, which the reader could assemble and put on their wall. The poster was a quote about design from Oscar Wilde.
Also included in the magazine was a small booklet named 'We heart', this contains film reviews, app reviews and other things that would interest creative people.
