Project Info:

Foundry is a fictional magazine that I created as my final project for the Publication Design course instructed by the excellent designer and teacher Sandee McClain. We were encouraged to make our magazine about something we are passionate about, and since I truly eat, sleep, breathe, and dream design, I decided to make Foundry, a zine all about the people who make excellent typefaces. The illustration on the cover was not of my creation, and I am struggling to find who created it so I may attribute it to them (and I am scary good at finding what I need online!). The illustration serves the cover story - Let There be Type - well, as it is about the impact of Gutenberg's printing press and his 42-line bible. Inside, the cover story is actually a real paper that I wrote on the subject, and I am particuarly proud (and far too nerdy) that the article is set in a two-column layout of 42 lines each - complete with large, red dropcaps! The images accompanying the cover story were extracted from early books on Gutenberg that are now in the public domain on archive.org. The other images are property of their respective creators; House Industries or the LostTypeCo. This course really enhanced my technical skills in the art of publication design, providing extensive inDesign knowledge, typography, layouts, spreads, file preperation, and so on.
