A quarterly publication concept
by 17 designers over 12 weeks.

This issue explores contrast: recognizing the contrast between organic and man-made objects, materials, and space in correlation with the design and layout of the seasonal issue for, you guessed it, the one and only texture-heaven time of year – Fall.

Each team member was assigned two articles to design within the publication, each article was categorized within one of 4 departments (Perspectives, Shapes, Interiors, Exhibits) unless they are uncategorized or a feature article, in which case the article exists between departments.

The publication is 9”x12” with 1” margins and 3 columns with 1.667” gutters.



Timeline: 12 weeks

The entire GLOSS Team met weekly in order to give feedback to each other on team concepts and article designs.
