The Outdoor Journal is an adventure lifestyle magazine that launched in early 2013. The subject was quite new for India which has a fairly small, yet growing audience. I was part of the team that developed the overall visual language and design for the magazine. The approach was to make it visually rich with lots of large photos and illustrations while paying a lot of individual attention to the typography and styling. I also managed and designed the first 4 issues.
This new mag is beautiful and I’m stoked to have a feature article in the issue, “Shark’s Fin Redux,” about our climb on the prow of the Shark’s Fin, or Meru Central.
