what I did on labour day...

Cover image by Kristina Klarin with some Photoshop colour work by Janine.

...got it DONE DONE DONE!

Well, the design and prepress, that is. Now it is off to the printer (The Prolific Group) who will craft it into something inky on paper... Look for it in your mailbox in early October.

The fall issue explores molecules and pixels as visual motifs. The cover image is by Kristina Klarin with some Photoshop colour work by me. The photo shows the process of drying the painted wooden beads that she uses in creating these beautiful necklaces. Six of the cover's coloured beads will be embossed for extra effect. (In all my years as a graphic designer, I've never embossed anything. In each issue, I try something new—this image seems like the perfect subject matter.)
