Art direction for West Weekend Magazine
West Weekend Magazine   From mid-2008 to mid-2009 I was a designer on West Weekend Magazine.

Here I was able to develop my skills in editorial design and try my hand at directing photo shoots.

One of my favourites was this cover (left), photographed by Rob Duncan.

Initially we were just going to use the black and white photo of Shirley Finn however I thought it would make a more striking cover by building a story around the image and give the cover noir feel.

Also, I got to bring in my retro red phone!
     
     
 
     
  I worked with stylist Malvina Stone and various photographers to ensure that the placement of the products would work with the layout of West Weekend Magazine.
     
     
     
I went on fashion shoots to ensure that the pose and background would work in the shape needed for them.
The shoot above was done in my living room and even features my mid-century furniture!
