Between 2012-2013 I worked at Colors Magazine as Associate Art Director. I had the chance to collaborate with three issues: 

Colors# 86 – Making the News

PUBLICATION, APRIL 2013

The topic of Colors #86 is the backstage of journalism. It talks about repetition, censorship, social media, citizen journalism and so on. The idea of the cover is to show all these subjects through a “news machine”, combining old and new media. After the cover, a real "news machine" was created to promote the magazine. It churns tweets through different media filters and turn them into print, simulating the contemporary 24-hour news cycle. The installation was presented at the International Journalism Festival in Perugia.

Colors# 85 – Going to Market

Publication, December 2012

Colors #85 is a magazine about stock markets, fruit markets, supermarkets and everything around the market idea. The concept of the cover is to show the network that exists between different products and environments. Each connection has a meaning behind. A pig, a plastic duck, a one dollar bill, a bible, a pipe and so on. Everything is connected somehow.

Colors #84 – Apocalypse

Publication, August 2012

Colors #84 is a guide to the end of the world. The cover/poster is a reinterpretation of the Maya Calendar based on natural disasters and relevant topics about apocalypse. The main graphic design reference to this project was "the whole earth catalogue", an American counterculture catalog, "sort of like Google in paperback form" according to Steve Jobs.  

The biggest challenge was to combine five different languages in the same composition, without losing harmony.

On the back poster, there is a kit of objects that everyone needs to have in order to survive, from slingshot rifles to a cigarette butt.
