Bride & Groom

Editorial Layout Design

These pages are examples of the layouts I designed for the Winter/Spring 2011 issue. I served as the sole in-house art director for Washingtonian Bride & Groom (a DC area biannual luxury bridal publication). My responsibilities included organizing and reviewing local photographers' submissions for the magazine’s “Real Weddings” feature, selecting the strongest entries, and editing each down to a two page spread. I also designed the layouts for the remaining editorial department-style stories including the table of contents, editors letter, masthead, and last page of the book.

In 2010, I helped the in house art director and designed a section called “Second Thoughts” as well as a wedding planner calendar.
