Archives Magazine

Archives magazine design employs canvas covers and pin binding to transform print magazines, making them less ephemeral and disposable. With an aim to revive interest in print publications, the design coveys the concept through the interplay of textual and iconographic content, creating an engaging and appealing reading experience that invites readers to appreciate the magazine's enduring value.


Educator Support: Amélie Côté, Maude Bouchard, Louise Paradis




The Fear Series: Short Stories on Horror

The book design for the Fear Series replicates classic literature publication styles and creatively adapts them to the theme of fear. It achieves this by strategically incorporating materials, images and layouts that evoke an unsettling atmosphere without deviating too far from conventional design elements.


Educator Support: Molly Hill, Mike Powell, John Baljkas
