For Signatures' 33rd issue, our staff found a collective nostalgia for shared experiences. The pieces provide a feeling of childhood memories, whether we remember them as beautiful, melancholic, or occasionally, macabre. 

After the process of curating, editing, and designing, our selections spoke to each other like friends sharing stories from the past.

Process

The work was selected through a juried process with the entire team; design team curated the publication further. We paired pieces together, then designed spreads with the given content. Then we printed out the designs and laid them out in front of us again, to ensure a cohesive flow throughout the publication.
