Positive/Negative Magazine is a student run magazine though the Editorial design course at RIT. The class writes, photographs, designs, and prints a volume of the magazine in one semester.
Photographer Lauren Loncar and I decided to write about alexithymia, which is a personality trait that prevents an individual from processing emotional information. Lauren photographed a model with tubes to show the connection from the mind to the mouth.
The decorative text used on the first spread is from Anberlin's song, "Alexithymia," which was our inspiration. I wanted to play off the tubes in this design and highlight their connection or disconnection.
Volume 7 of Positive/Negative received Student Gold Award at the National Level of American Advertising Awards in Publication Design.
