Warning: Your Cell Phone May Be Hazardous to Your Health

GQ magazine, New York, New York, New York, 2010


Project brief: GQ is a men’s fashion and general-interest magazine with a circulation of approximately one million. As the art department, our clients are the editors. We design this magazine every month.

Approach: Every feature article is unique. We react to the material: the text, the photograph, the headline. We work alongside the client, our editors, to make visual the voice of the piece.

Effectiveness: We are pop culture. We’re part of a magazine that champions the fashion designers, actors, athletes and chefs that we like. We have an engaged audience of readers that react and respond to our publication.
