Polygon is a project started in Fall 2019 to analyze and redesign an existing magazine or online blog. I chose Polygon and decided to focus my attention on Quantum Break, which will set a general design direction for the whole book. The book includes a cover, contributor, table of content, interview, and an article. I designed the magazine to have a smooth and kinetic visual flow using type and image.
The final book was printed and bound together using the perfect-bind method. The whole book was designed using Quantum Break’s style guide, including the colors, icons, and layout. Each page follows a four-column master grid, and the use of images was set to bring the readers into the experience of the game. Moreover, the fracturing body copy and images create a sense of time breaking, which is the game’s central theme. In addition, each section was separated using the light and dark theme to create an interesting visual flow throughout, which brings a new mood every time the viewers enter a new section.
