Concept

Volume 1.01 is the Microscopy Issue. Through interviews, artist exposes, photo essays and beyond 1.01 exposes the smallest fragments of existence in their raw and untainted forms. Showing us how scientific advances are fueling creative thinking and execution while inspiring readers to look further into all of these less-explored areas of study.

 

Solution

Verge is defined as an edge or border. The look and feel of the publication is calculated and scientific, down to the image captions which resemble mathematical notations. Large images and fields of negative space make the content the focal point of the publication. All color is derived from the imagery creating high impact in every spread. Glyphs act as section dividers as well as stand alone elements, composed of uncomplicated shapes that are repeated, but treated differently in each composition.
