Pentagram’s Austin office has redesigned the Loyola Marymount University’s alumni/university magazine, the magazine’s website and created an iPad app for the publication. The goal was to make one really strong multitiered entity, leveraging the printed piece and the electronic space as formats that each have their own unique strengths. The new Fall 2013 issue includes a feature on LMU alumnus Van Partible, who created the cartoon classic “Johnny Bravo” while he was a student. Partible sports a “Bravo-esque” bouffant on the front cover of the publication, and his two-dimensional alter-ego shows off the animator’s towering inspiration on the back cover (watch a short film about the cover shoot on LMU Magazine Online).
Took a humorous approach to an alumni profile by photographing the alumn who is an animator as his cartoon creation.
The cover has won several awards in the alumni magazine arena.
