I have done two jobs for magazines lately, both of which I have enjoyed very much and both of very different styles. Here is the first for Homegrown Magazine. The article was about wine. Specifically about the Pinot Blanc grown and bottled in Michigan.
The client was inspired by one of the samples in my portfolio and contacted me through my agent Richard Salzman.
The client wanted to show the parent and sibling grapes, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, of Pinot Blanc all together to show the differences between them. I came up with three different sketches.
The client chose the third sketch. It seemed the most appropriate to the layout. We decided to add a subtle background, and here is the end result as well as the way it appeared in the magazine.
Thank you to design director Ken Cendrowski, who was a pleasure to work with. The whole process went very smoothly and the client was pleased with the end result.
