As senior designer, I collaborated with editors to translate their ideas into strong visual layouts. Performed photo research. I was given creative ownership of the Cities section, the back 1/3 of the magazine dedicated to real estate, restaurants, art openings, retail news and other local happenings in specific cities with luxury markets. Art directed in-house still life shoots for the Cities section.
Designed FOB, BOB and dept. layouts and print-ready mechanicals for various Niche Media regional luxury lifestyle glossies, including: LA Confidential, Gotham, Philadelphia Style, Capitol Hill, Michigan Avenue, Ocean Drive and Hamptons Magazines.
