The December 2012 issue of Ourzone includes readers poll results, a yearbook special feature and a great interview with Black Veil Brides.
The cover of Ourzone’s Slam Dunk Festival special needed to bring forward elements of the official festival graphics and also maintain our own unique style.
The feature focuses on the US four piece and their individual personalities. The ‘Blankety Blank’ style windows on the cover were great fun to implement.
The Ourzone website has a subscriber area which was outdated and needed to be branded to fit in with the styling of the main website.
Four Year Strong are set to Tear Up The UK this year and that was the theme that was stuck to with this cover and supporting feature.
This was a really fun one to work on due to the great concept and play on words with the title of the band’s forthcoming album.
The front cover of the final Ourzone issue of 2011 needed to be a bold one. This is one of my favourite covers to date.
Designed for the November 2011 issue of Ourzone Magazine. The tagline is ‘Against The Clock’ This was played on with the spiral & text.
Designed for the September 2011 issue of Ourzone. The brain plays on the ‘Radiosurgery’ theme set by the bands forthcoming album.
This is one of my favourite features to date with the addition of the flame illustration. The cover of this issue is comprised of 5 individual shots.
A really great photo helped to give this cover some impact. I’m pleased with the feel of this cover and it’s supporting feature.
Front cover of Ourzone’s June 2011 issue featuring 3OH!3. I used a bold and vibrant tone here to accentuate the pop vibe.
I’m often faced with the task of converting flat magazine features into 3D style mockups to help promote Ourzone. If you’re an Ourzone subscriber you will see my new solution to this problem hitting your inbox very soon, as I have incorporated it into the design of our new html newsletter. I have created a neat little PSD file which I can update rapidly thanks to the use of Smart Objects.
