NEWCITY TOP 5 OF 2016 / cover and feature design - 2016

Chicago Newcity newspaper publication cover design

I had the opportunty to design the cover and interior feature for the 2016 end of year issue of Chicago'sNewcity newspaper. Normally, this issue is a pretty light-hearted celebration of the end of the year, with a bright illustrated cover to accompany it. 2016 was obviously different. I kept the cover simple and bold, drawing inspiration from manifesto design and using my own redesign of the Impact typeface to make a bold typographic statement. It was pretty cathartic to see this in vending machines throughout the streets of Chicago.

I continued the bold typographic style and stark color palette throughout the feature design on the interior pages, including the newspaper's actual Top 5 list.
