Wide Open Magazine, a new publication from Red Hat, is arriving sometime around mid-March (although people can pre-order). I designed the Web site (both the look and the implementation) and served as the creative director for the first issue, came up with the general design, and also made all the collateral (posters, boxes, etc.).

The magazine features some photography by yours truly (including the cover photograph) and I also contributed in the ways of layout, illustration, typography, and style.

It was nice to do a variety of different types of artwork and design for the magazine, including getting back into the publishing mode for a while.

(I first started professionally publishing stuff over a decade ago, and over the years I’ve seen a lot of changes — yet many things remained the same.)
