Combining Illustration & Typography
Summer Concert Series
For several years I have internally debated whether I enjoyed typographic or illustrative work more. I’ve come to the conclusion that my favorite design work is when I get to integrate the two in creative ways. My assignment was to create a full introduction spread for a magazine article about the Cleveland Orchestra’s Summer Concert Series. I decided to combine elements of summer, namely flowers in full bloom, with instruments, in a vibrant cacophony of color and music. After completing the illustrations, I worked to create a layout that both allowed the illustrations to shine, as well as tie together the piece with an interesting title and other typographic elements.
