Design system and art direction for MIT Technologies Review’s annual list of the ten technology advances that shape the way we work and live. I used the typefaces Ferry from the foundry Letters from Sweden and Lydia from the Colophon foundry to create a unique mixture of typography that helped the package stand out and tied each of the ten features together through the headline design. I also incorporated a color legend that reinforced the system while allowing each feature to use a striking color. The design for this package is a 2018 Society of Publication Designers medal finalist.

A collection of feature story layouts from MIT Technology Review that I designed. I pushed the boundary of the Swiss International house style and presented unique visual elements that communicated elements of the story in an exciting manner and allowed the editorial content to blend into the design language.

Editorial Sections

A collection of layouts from MIT Technology Review’s demo and reviews section of the magazine that I designed. These recurring sections featured a variety of templated elements that had to remain consistent across issues. This made creativity in page layout and design a challenge and placed a premium on art direction.
