Description

For the ‘Secrets’ issue we implemented a new design system by constructing each page as layered file folders. Through our illustration choices and an unusual color palette we created a special issue that evokes an ‘espionage’ kind of mood but isn’t cliche. A coloring page was added as a slip sheet in the middle to color and reveals a secret.
