Spring Design For Journalism Section 2

Magazine.

Posted in Uncategorized by leetempledaigaku on March 17, 2010

Japanese music magazines have a habit of throwing as much stuff onto their covers as they possibly can. Its silly, because they usually dump a whole bunch of time and money into photo shoots to go with their featured articles and interviews. This cover shows a lot more restraint. It’s also my favorite band of all time, ZI:KILL, on the front.

For my magazine, I’m going to do something with American Japanese bands. There are quite a few Japanese(nationality, or just influenced by) groups working out of Baltimore, NYC, Boston and California. I’d call the magazine AmeriKEI. Kei is the Japanese word for style, and Japanese marketing loves portmanteaus.
