Magazine You + I - Professor : Joseph Quackenbush

Design a magazine with complete editorial and design control, striving to compose a cohesive visual system.

With a magazine striving to bring understanding through discovery, I felt the aesthetic must be approachable and familia. A far cry from typical academia, You + I gives the reader white space to breath and think, illustrations to ease and interest the mind, and text to contemplate. In its truth, it is about body and soul, of all creatures.

Ubu Roi Artists Book - Professor : Joseph Quackenbush

Using the 1896 text Ubu Roi by Alfred Jarry, create a rich, experiential artist book.

What made Pa Ubu so revolutionary in 1896 and just as fascinating today is how strange he is in the world of adults. With this in mind, it only seemed appropriate to analyze him as a child, through a Freudian method of course. Analysis of Pa’s phrasing, vocabulary, and tone allows a deeper insight to his mind and our understanding of him as a three dimensional character.
