Overview

Waxwing Magazine is a quarterly online literary magazine featuring poetry (included translated works), prose, music, artwork and reviews. It is well-regarded for the quality of its editing, its emphasis on diversity, and its design.

I was asked to develop the Waxwing brand, design the site, and oversee its development. Excellent typography (in multiple languages) and responsive interface design for an uncluttered reading experience on any device were priorities in the design process.

Typography is a great love of mine — and is sadly not given the same great care in computer games (even excellent ones!) as are writing, modeling, texturing, level design, or the million other details that make a polished product. I would like to see that change.
