Metro Hall gets Graffiti-Bombed:
The challenge for this project was to create a dynamic layout and illustrations for a chosen article that would fit into Wired Magazine. I had to research and reference from Wired’s online rate card and then layout my article according to their specifications.
My illustrations were hand drawn from markers and India ink. They were inspired from the overall massage of the article—which mainly discusses the debate of graffiti being either a nuisance or being a form of art that should be appreciated and respected. The illustrations add visual appeal to the magazine layout. Furthermore, on the front page, the photograph of the hand with the title of the article written on it, is my own hand that I photographed myself using time delay. The direction of where my hand points to leads the viewers eye straight to the text, giving the spread great movement and direction.
Tools/Programs used: Nikon D90 camera, Adobe Photoshop CS5.5, Adobe InDesign CS5.5 and Adobe Illustrator CS5.5, a scanner, India ink and markers.

“A messy kitchen goes from chaos to order. The opening spread pulls the reader in and intensifies the subject matter. The long bars illustrate the chaos and carry the reader through to the last spread where correction is finally achieved by the clean organization of the spread, though still reminding the reader of the chaos that once was.”
The use of the drop caps mimicing the typeface of the title clearly shows the connection between the images behind and the bodycopy, connecting them as one and creating the relation. The interviewer that I have chosen for my most recent brief has an understanding that ‘chaos is beautiful’, being my root for inspiration, thus I plan to research into ways that chaos can be controlled, manipulated and unleashed in design and magazines.
