Chaos! That's been my life for the past several months so I'm finally getting around to sharing these stories I designed for my former employer National Geographic Traveler. When the September issue of Natty G Traveler came out I was in the middle of a relocation, several project deadlines, and a presentation on branding and marketing for photographers for Geekfest 2010.
So here are two stories I designed, Ischia and Slovenia.
There were a couple of pictures that were swapped out from the versions I had sent and the typography was tweaked. I was expecting that to happen though. A layout out of context is one thing and when placed in the sequence of ads and a mix of other stories, changes are inevitable. Anyone working for a magazine needs to get over that one pretty quick.
On top of working with my favorite people, I had a blast pairing pictures again.
Thanks Jerry, Leigh and Carol.
