With Art Director Balwant Ahira we relaunched Arena magazine. I stayed on as resident designer until its final issue. This was a dream job for me as it was my favourite magazine, I was pretty star struck.
These covers are the only thing on my site I didn't design. I was a junior but it was such a tight-knit team that I feel a great amount of ownership! (actually, it was my shout to switch to matte covers with gloss for text to stand out on the news shelves).
Various layouts. We had fun with type. Those huge drops caps.
I miss this mag so much. Although it's weird looking back and recognising how sexualised a lot of it was. (I was also featured on the contributors page of the last ever issue 😎 )
