D8 Magazine

The D8 Magazine is published twice a year. It features artwork friends of the studio and other collaborators, articles by the team at D8 and some case studies of recent studio projects. Each issue is handed to a different member of the team at D8 to design, I took on volume 6.
The cover features a type treatment with a custom warped psychedelic halftone, printed on a textured paper that mimics the wavy lines of the halftone. The spine hit with a clear foil to give the look and feel of of tape wrapped around as binding and also highlights the texture of the paper.

Inside, I created a colourful repeat pattern of six different ways to represent the number six. This was used as an end page, a fill inside the form-cut french folded section dividers as well as on the spine.
Each section has it’s own treatment in order to give them a distinct feel, but use a common typeface and grid structure to bring a consistent identity to the whole magazine.

Designed at D8.
Section One features contributions from artist Alistair Gow along with designer Emil Paun & Harriet Short
The second section contains articles written by the team at D8, including David Shanks & James Young. These articles are complemented by contributions from photographers Alaisdair Smith, Vanessa Colareta and my own illustrations.
The third chapter of the magazine is a selection of case studies of recent work completed by the entire team at D8, with contributions from illustrator Matt McPhee and photographer Gordon Burniston.
