Magazine Design For Print | Hanna
January 29, 2016

At the end of last year I was lucky enough to be involved in the creation of Hanna’s second printed version of their online magazine.  I was asked to create a cover design and lay out the internal text and illustrations.

Hanna Issue 2 by Urban Reiver, ScotlandShort but sweet, this dinky A5 volume focuses on the subject of eating disorders, written by and for young women.  It’s extraordinarily powerful stuff and as such, I wanted to create a design that made the text the focus.

By highlighting particularly shocking paragraphs with large emboldened text, I helped to draw the reader’s eye in.  The use of a particular font helped to keep the whole document on-brand, whilst maintaining a nice consistency and flow throughout.  Illustrations were used in a more dramatic way, covering double-page spreads.
