How do you create a modern, relevant, must-read magazine around an event that happened more than 150 years ago? And how do you do it with literally no art budget? That was the assignment for The Civil War Monitor. Working closely with the founder, we named the new publication, created the architecture, branded the editorial departments, and designed a remote production process for the new magazine. We worked with the Library of Congress, National Archives, and other historical institutions to curate outstanding period photography and artwork. And the result is a rich, full, very-much-alive, and award-winning design that stands out, yet allows the ideas and spectacular artwork to take center stage in every issue.
