Designing the K-Zine Logo

Posted on June 27th, 2011

When I was working on the cover for K Zine issue one, Graeme Hurry (the editor / publisher) asked me to re-design the magazine logo. The colours of the original logo were black,white and red so I had to keep that in mind.

My design went through a couple of revisions before Graeme was satisfied with the end result, and then a black and white version was created for any time the full colour logo could not be used.

The fonts that I used came from Font Squirrel, a source of free commercial use fonts.

K-Zine Cover

Posted on June 24th, 2011

I created this piece for the first issue of K Zine, a new magazine for the Kindle which aims to provide quality original genre fiction for the mobile reader. The magazine is a Science Fiction, Horror, Fantasy and Crime anthology and will feature, in particular, stories which mix the various genres.

Edited by Graeme Hurry it is a successor to Kimota a small press print magazine, which ceased publishing in 2002, but has a “best of” collection available at the Amazon Kindle store.

The Image was created using royalty free photos from a couple of sites along with one that I took in Malta, all of which can be seen on the left of the main image. These were then combined and worked on in Photoshop using various tools and filters. I then designed a logo and added the issue number.
