Magazine Redesign


The purpose of this project was to redesign a magazine issue with the intention of improving the overall aesthetic as well its function.

I chose two magazines (rather then one) to combine, creating a whole new breed called WAXED. The original magazines it took to create WAXED were Thrasher and Surfer.  The originals, especially Thrasher were very chaotic. I looked to refine the magazine by combining the rebellious and loud culture of the two sports through a calmer voice that gave room to breathe and soak up the information.
