And… of course, we’re in the middle of Spring and I’m just now posting the Winter issue! But hey, better late than never right? I really loved how the home features and guides turned out. If you like what you see, check out shelleylai.com to see more of my work!
As we all know, last year was just all over the place, so I held off on posting. Right before the pandemic, we published a dual sided issue featuring Breckenridge and Winter Park magazines. Here are a few layouts from it.
Check out the latest Spring and Summer issues of Fort Collins Magazine.
This was the first time Fort Collins magazine did something super abstract for their cover. The Spring cover has at least five different images in it with a typography treatment on top of it. To give it a fun spring-like feel, I went for warm bright colors; but at the same time, kept some earthy-tones to reflect the brewery theme. I’m glad they went for it because I think it looks pretty neat!
The home feature is probably my favorite layout. Not only did the photographer do an awesome job capturing the mood and essence of the story, but the article itself wasn’t the typical happily ever after story — which makes it an interesting read. This gave me the challenge of having to creatively reflect thatUsing the bold san serif font shows the seriousness of the topic, and giving it an opacity treatment is a metaphor of how the couple’s lives in the house is in the past. In the end, I’m really please with how it turned out.
I can’t believe it’s been a year since my last post! Here’s my latest work for Ft. Collins Magazine. If you ever visit, be sure to grab a copy when you’re there or visit here to find out where to shop, eat and play!
It’s been a year since I started working on Breckenridge Magazine, so yea… I think it’s about time to post some work from it. The major design change made is the cover. I’ve given it a more updated look. With some creative freedom, I also had some fun with the features. Here’s a few samples. To see more, please visit http://breckmag.com.
