megaZINE Cover – Philology
Click for full view
Philology is the study of comparing the different ways in which people communicate historically, which incidentally our group felt was an appropriate name for both our group and our version of the program zine, as the assigned theme was “culture”.
The design idea for this cover was to reference a child’s flip book where the top, middle, and bottom interchange to create funny images. Depicted are characters from youth culture, ‘high’ culture, and exotic culture (at least from the western perspective). I had a lot of fun both with designing the different character types as well as the contour drawings for the backgrounds.
