Problem: Explore how we define commonly used terms by reinterpreting one word visually through two magazine spreads depicting different definitions of the same word.
Solution: Focusing on the word “alone,” I chose to create visual interpretations of being emotionally alone vs. being physically alone, and paired magazine articles that fit the mood of the definitions being depicted. In working to find the best design solutions for the magazine spreads, this project pushed me to ensure I was utilizing the layout style of the magazine spread as another element of the design that helped tell the story of the definition of alone.
