Magazine for creatives
Ås Magazine is a scientific periodical for creatives that uses surreal art to communicate a wide range of scientific topics by using a language the audience understands.
Ås magazine is the brainchild of a discussion between creatives; born out of the agreement that while scientific topics are interesting, most science-based publications were too dry for the subjects to stick in an artistic mind.
The name Ås comes from the municipality in Norway where an artist brought to life Leonardo da Vinci's original design for a self-supporting arched footbridge. Much like da Vinci himself, the bridge represents the convergence between art and science.
Each cover is meant to highlight the primary story, first showcasing the art piece that will make the content memorable then pulling in a complimentary color palette to make each as unique as the subjects within them.
The Periodic Table of Elements correlates of course to the subject of science but likewise the elemental lockup of the Ås logo.
Departments are grouped by scientific subject and labeled after a leader in the field: Darwin for Earth sciences, Degrasse-Tyson for space, Thunberg for current events, etc.
