CRUSH \ OBSESSION #11 \ EDITORIAL \ 2016

Photography, Editorial Design, Typography

Unlike most publications CRUSHfanzine has one focus only—an obsession. Whether it's an abstract topic like “Sex Appeal”, “Acting French", or a literal focus on "Men At Work", every issue's featured obsession is further illustrated by the turn of every page with gorgeous photography, refined layout, intimate written pieces from poets and writers, and an overall sense of romantic ambiguity.

Obsession #11: Men at Work, featuring Michael Shannon, was my debut issue as a designer for the one of a kind publication. Embracing the role of graphic liaison among the publication’s owners and international community of photographers, I pieced together visually what it meant to be men of various occupations: whether a prolific actor, Spanish flamenco dancer, or veterinarian in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
