Wireframing, Interactivity, Select Icon Illustrations & Typographic System.
Frank Magazine is Columbia College Chicago's digital magazine. I had the opportunity to work with an awesome team to create the wireframe and style for the first web-based version of the publication.
The first article I was tasked with focused on zines, independent publishing and the culture which surrounds it. We gained great insight from a bookstore owner and a zine maker in Chicago, and each team member picked up a zine and wrote a brief review so we could showcase how interesting and varied each one was.
I was also responsible for the interactive map portion of the magazine, which highlights the team's favorite spots around Chicago.
Currently, Frank Magazine is in the hands of several students with web development knowledge at Columbia College Chicago, working to make issue #7 of Frank Magazine accessible to everyone. Check back here in the future for a link to the full-fledged, final version!
A special thank you to Jo-Nell Sieren for spearheading this project, and to the whole Frank team including the developers, for their shared creativity, many hours of hard work, and perseverance.
