Hot off the Press: The Insider’s Guide to Anchorage

Design, Publication Design, Visual Journalism


I didn’t grab my copy of the Anchorage Press last week until Sunday afternoon during a leisurely trip to Girdwood for a little lunch and exploration. So I was pretty pleased when I sat down at a restaurant with a copy of the press and the Insider’s Guide slid out. This is one of my most recent projects. I had a great time working with the wonderful folks at the Anchorage’s alt weekly on their combined visitor guide and restaurant special — Cuisine Scene. The visual theme was inspired by nautical and map design with some seersucker stripes and a splash of neon — an ode the the  bizarre combinations of lime, teal and tangerine I have been seeing and crushing on lately.

What are those lovely fonts?

Why they are called Seaside Resort, Pacifico and Futura.
