MISSION

The Vision

Outcast magazine was created out of the desire to document the lives of those who feel they are outsiders. Whether it be on a local or global scale, the stories within this magazine share personal archives, stories, and realities of various people from all walks of life.

A Personal Archive

A Personal Archive

I wanted to take this opportunity to highlight the stories of people I knew personally. I had a significantly large archive full of photographs I've taken of friends and family that have never made it to the public eye. This allowed me to be fully immersed into the process– from ideation to execution.

Why a Bilingual Magazine?

Why a Bilingual Magazine?

Creating this magazine with both English and Japanese came organically to me. As I was inputting my own photographs from Japan into the spreads, I recalled all the stories and topics surrounding its culture that resonated with the theme of the magazine. And so, I thought it would be a special opportunity to expand the audience from solely English-speakers to a Japanese one as well.

Brand Identity

BRAND IDENTITY

One of the goals I had was keeping the content focused on the visual relationship bridged between expressive typography and photography.

Throughout the magazine are pull quotes treated with a consistent identity– a thick, overlapping serif typeface. In doing so, I hoped to keep consistent with the theme of gravitating away from what is considered "normal". As they bore a dominating presence within the magazine, I wanted to keep the content and stylization of the spreads simple and clean.
