I have been working on the branding for Love Japan magazine, a new magazine for, you guessed it, fans of Japan.
I’ve been a bit magazine mad recently; writing for our college magazine, and researching fashion magazines for work I’ve been doing in and out of college, so I think this was the catalyst for Love Japan. I wanted this magazine to have the aesthetics of independent magazines that I’ve fallen in love with, whilst focusing on Japanese culture, travel, lifestyle, food and fashion. Issue #1 will be released in the Spring and I’ve got contributors from the UK, USA and Japan working on articles.

A colour palette to be used throughout the magazine and website
Title typography for the front cover of the magazine
I also created a selection of patterns to be used within the magazine for backgrounds and/or borders, suggested how typography could be used and produced a sample design for the layout.
I can’t wait to see and read the first issue when it is released in the Spring!
