Across the Margin is an Art & Culture magazine with a literary focus based in Brooklyn, New York. Founded in 2010, it was created to provide a place for new and upcoming writers to share their stories and viewpoints in an easy and straightforward manner. I am co-owner of the magazine and as the lead design voice at the company, I am the driving force behind the design, layout, branding and overall “feel” of its many facets.
Since its inception, Across the Margin has grown rapidly and expanded its offerings. The company now owns a publishing imprint, ATM Publishing, and several notable podcasts which have been picked up by the Osiris Podcast Network. I am a lead creative voice in these ventures as well.
Across the Margin’s color palette will lean heavy on black and white to provide contrast with pops of a beautiful dark red color to highlight areas of visual appeal. When appropriate, a dusky warm grey will aid in enhancing visual effects.
BRANDING INCORPORATING WORDS AND VISUAL ELEMENTS
Since Across the Margin was founded initially as a literary magazine, there will sometimes be a focus on incorporating the written word in branding and marketing designs, as an homage to those beginnings.
