Guitar World Masthead/Cover Redesign
This project entailed the redesign of a magazine masthead and designing a cover and two-page spread to convey the new logo and themes. I redesigned Guitar World magazine, a publication I used to read regularly.
Guitar World Cover Design
This was a sample cover incorporating the new masthead as well as text & headline placement. Font choices were made to complement the logo. Note that like the original Guitar World logo, the overall hue can be changed to match a certain theme. The masthead in this instance matched the color of Jimmy Page's SG Guitar.
Guitar World Redesigned Masthead
This assignment was a combination rebranding and magazine layout exercise. I kept the two-tone theme of the original logo and only preserved the negative lettering for the G, which was now layered on top of an outline of a guitar pick.
Guitar World Spread Design
This two-page spread detailed how an article would appear in the magazine, incorporating the new fonts and themes. The "Gear Review" section header is similar to the revised masthead.
