Surfing Editorial

The topic was surfing and the theme was 'Retro Surfboards of the Future'. I was initially inspired by David Carson who created visuals with fragmented letters and had contrasting large and small lettering, paired with bizarre leading that created movement. Instead I stepped away from that and tried to create a retro feel in the use of graphic almost silhouette images, and paired it with an orange that you can just see being on that VW beetle on the first page. I created a feeling around my editorial very different from the expected and felt the flow of the content helped to amplify my concept as the movement of a wave.
