Music Mecca: Laurel Canyon
For this project done at Art Center, the brief was to choose an article and design the layout, as it would be in a magazine or book.
I chose to combine multiple articles I found on the same topic, turning it into an issue in a series. This specific issue discusses the history of Laurel Canyon, the major players that influenced the lifestyle of the folk era and what ‘the canyon’ has become today.
I researched and gathered pre-existing articles on the history of Laurel Canyon. The articles were used to supplement the design and development of this magazine.
In creating an identity system for the overall magazine, I decided to call it “ Music Mecca”. I worked a lot with how typography would play into the magazine’s branding and layout.
