The Crier

for mike perry, 2007

Editorial design for the 4th and last issue of The Crier, a short-lived magazine project done by two Jewish girls with an imprint called Jewcy.

Anecdotally, this was the first ‘real’ publication project I worked on. The style borrows heavily from the Creative Director I worked with, Mike Perry. However, I think I was able to roll with it and carve out some interesting moments within a style and approach that is quite different from my own. Notably, excessive use of drop caps and text wraps.

Three years after I designed this the subscription form (yes, a cut-out, mail-in subscription form) was featured  in The Form Book by Borries Schwesinger, published by Thames & Hudson in 2010. To my knowledge this is the only printed design publication I have ever been featured in. I have always put a lot of care in to forms when I have to design them, because filling out a poorly considered form can be very stressful, so I guess I’m happy that someone noticed.
