Rap-Up Magazine 1.0

Art direction, brand direction, and graphic design for Rap-Up, a hip-hop and R&B magazine aimed at Generation Y from 2004 to the present. I’ve crafted the art direction of the publication since it’s inception, having created the masthead, typographic standards, seasonal color palettes, and versioning through the editorial design for eleven issues. 

The first incarnation of the magazine was predominantly pop: bright colors and expressive display typography have made the magazine consistently stand out.

There have been innumerable other aspects of designing for Rap-Up, including posters, print ads, apparel, broadcast design, and website design, development, and deployment.
