Writerly

An online literary magazine

Writerly is an online literary magazine created by teens to inspire and motivate writers with great stories and awesome resources. From book reviews, interviews, contests, and more, Writerly is an author’s guide to inspiration.

Writerly was created as a passion project in the summer of 2014 with a group of talented writers acting as editors, writers, and interviewers. As creative director for the project, I designed a comprehensive branding system and identity for the magazine and led the layout design for the first issue. In addition, I designed the magazine’s primary website on Tumblr (given the large writing community on the microblogging site at the time) as well as all social media graphics.

Writerly was an important project in my development as a designer, juggling multiple layers and parts at the same time and gaining expertise in both graphic design as well as social media management.
