PLOT Literary Magazine

PLOT is a literary magazine that explores how place shapes narrative, imagination and the understanding of a region. Through a curated selection of reviews, essays, interviews and other writings that are prominent of the region, the magazine aims to oscillate between the real and the imagined to find the core of what informs the semiotics that characterises a given location; the societal conditions, cultural phenomena and human behaviour.

For my publication project I chose ten books and put them in the context of editorial design. My focus has been to create a solid identity that can shift as the magazine shifts location, whilst remaining recognizable to the readers. For the first edition, Scandinavia, the content and the colour palette have been influenced by Scandinavian Noir as a literary and film genre.
