Redesign a prototype issue for Juxtapoz magazine. Establish the editorial content, featured narratives, and identity design. Emphasis on content creation and curation, incorporating image and type integration.
As Juxtapoz remains the same logo and identity for decades, a new identity and logo will provide Juxtapoz with a new look. The new Juxtapoz visual identity uses different sans-serif typeface to represent the variation of Urban Art. Use the label shape as part of the graphics. Given Juxtapoz's purpose to embrace the street arts, graffiti, and contemporary art, it has not done a matching job at designing its layouts. The design style is rather conservative, but all its content urges a more experimental and adventurous style. The different design styles apply to each feature and give readers an adventurous reading feeling.
The project found success in applying different design styles and visual graphics in one issue, yet still, keep the taste from the Urban Art. Juxtapoz magazine introduces many various artists, promoting a better ground of designing a diverse formula for each artist. However, the subtle balance between pairing typeface and design formula can be tricky in one issue.
