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.
I just finished the Winter 2018-19 issue of Breckenridge Magazine. Still having trouble deciding what to give someone who’s an adventurer? Check out the latest issue for some Coloradian gift ideas! Merry Christmas Everyone!
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 while since I’ve posted some of my work, so here are cover and feature layout designs for The Absolute Sound Issue 215 and 216.
TAS Issue 215
This one was really fun and challenging at the same time. This was my first time ever directing a shoot remotely. On top of that, I had never seen the equipment in person before. After meeting and discussing the shoot with California-based photographer Randall Cordero of Cordero Studios on the phone, I thought it would be cool to have the equipment shot against a red vignette background to give it some depth and contrast. All in all, I’m quite please with the results and Randall did a fantastic job with the photos!
Austin-based photographer Joel Salcido and I spent hours just trying to get the perfect angle shot for the opening spread! I love it though! All in a full days work of pita chips and hummus!
