I research, write and design my own DIY online music magazine. Each issue focuses on the music of a specific subculture, decade and country, with the goal of connecting music movements with historical resonance.
The 'zine comes in two formats: a traditional online article format, hosted on medium.com, and a more experimental mixed-media format hosted on Instagram
It's unconventional, but the Instagram platform has allowed me to quickly test and implement alternative design ideas and evolve those day-to-day based on audience reception. The freedom and ambiguity on Instagram allowed me to integrate video, song samples, audio interview excerpts and more elaborate typographic design in much more graceful ways than a traditional blog platform. Each issue spans a month's worth of posts, and is assigned its own unique color so subscribers can differentiate subjects at a glance and follow the story across multiple posts more easily.
