The Benton magazine is a project I worked on in one of my design core classes. It was a group project where your team had to make an exhibition or display about the history of a typeface. I acted as project lead, a job which consists of me doing project overview. I approved of designs, documented it, kept the schedule, worked on concepts and ideas which my team, two classmates of mine, rendered into the final piece. I also worked on the copy within the magazine.

Benton Sans is a type family created for magazines, with one of the most well known users of Benton being the Martha Stewart Magazine. So we decided to use that as a direction for our project, to make our project resemble a home living style magazine
