Calling All Snow Bums
SLOPED is a seasonal magazine that keeps up with all things snow and slopes. Catered towards winter athletes and snow lovers, it covers a wide variety of topics ranging from climate change to style suggestions and more.
The masthead for SLOPED presents a clever way to use type as an image as well as turn a simple word into an interesting work of imagery. Using a bold font allows for increased legibility and accessibility for the viewers, while also using slight color shifts to create emphasis.
Table of Contents
Avoiding traditional forms seen used for the table of contents, I chose to map out the magazine on a mountain. This allows readers to seamlessly ski through the pages. The map key also functions as a reading difficulty level, doling in purpose.
Impactful Image Making
These custom images are designed to visually articulate the effects of global warming, especially on the ski industry. To the left is a fire blower and to the right is a snow sprinkler. Readers can learn more by reading pages 6-9 or help by donating to the Environmental Defense Fund.
