Still Magazine article
Lee Cashatt, the writer for the article asked me to design this for publication in Still Magazine. It was a unique challenge because this is very much like a one-page infographic and a mini-article all in one. A not-so-overt patriotic color scheme was chosen to highlight the various branches of the armed services.
Special attention was paid to how I would display the bar graph. The sideways bar graph was chosen over many others because of how well it display the forward motion of growing numbers of military graduates. I also spent time cutting out the background of all photographic elements on the page. This helps 'air-out' the layout and get out of the 'boxyness' of the typical photo.
