FORGE & FIST

Forge & Fist is a fictional magazine assignment I did while attending the Art Institute of Phoenix. My aim with this project is to emphasize the history and artform of knifemaking, as well as the culture of the craft. I wanted to elevate the concept beyond a simple trade magazine, and think about brand longevity, as though there would be more issues to come.

This project included branding, several spreads, and two covers, one of which is mixed media illustration. I researched and wrote each article, going so far as to interview a knifemaker from my hometown.
