BTS is Art EditorialThis is a student project.
This is a replication of Billboard magazine in style only, no pages exist as actual Billboard (or other publications') pages or ads. The feature spread is completely original and aside from the top left section so is the first article on Lauv.
This project is for Billboard, a popular entertainment magazine with a focus on American pop artists, artists with popularity in American markets, and celebrity news.
My design solution includes little nuggets that only fans will notice and understand, for example how the design mimics their then newest album’s cover art, the importance of the colour purple and the number 7 to them, and ensuring all members are seen clearly in photos. However, none of these hinder the design and flow of the pages and simply add to the design for non-fans. The article is about an interesting initiative BTS started but it relates to anyone with an interest in art, this will pull in regular readers while things related to BTS stay on their pages to not disturb what they’re used to too much.
