Abyss Magazine

Identity, Editorial Design, Art Direction  
Identity and editorial design for Abyss magazine.

Flipping through an issue of Abyss, you can expect to feel a wash of strange, calm, and puzzling wonderment take over you. The inspiration for the content and design of Abyss came from the definition behind its name: “a deep, immeasurable chasm...” and, “anything profound, unfathomable, or infinite; depth”.
            Many of the pages are left with significant amounts of white space, allowing the reader space to ponder the magazine’s content. The goal was to create a playful layout that would allow the art, writings, and subjects to shine.
