As part of my work with Frontier, a Toronto design office, in May 2022 I partnered with associate creative director Tristan Marantos and others on the third issue of Live Magazine. The magazine has a unique concept: for each issue, Frontier assembles a team of editors, writers, photographers, and illustrators to give readers insight into an event’s most powerful ideas and conversations. This issue responds to and expands upon the Bentway’s Street Summit, a weekend-long conference about streets, cities, and public space.
In four weeks’ time, I conceived and edited the entire issue, which mixed interviews and stories with an op-ed, a photo portfolio, short films, and more. My colleagues at Frontier commissioned illustrators and photographers to round out the project, which is presented as a website. They also created several on-site activations from which we gathered materials for the magazine.
