Magazine design, creative direction, and layout
Creative direction, layout, and illustration for Seated Magazine
Seated needed to be sexy: a high-end feel, cutting no corners on quality.
The latest issue featured gold foil on the cover, and Pantone Metalic Gold treatments inside the catalogue — including full pages treated with gold ink and printed over with content for a super fancy effect. 100lb matte cover, 100lb matte text interior, the magazine is a large-sized coffee-table-worthy book at 9x12” finished.
The hospitality industry events magazine
Seated is a unique magazine that focuses on providing event managers in restaurants, hotels, and unique venues with the top trends, tips, and best practices for the event business. This magazine is one of several initiatives by Tripleseat to help build a community in the event management industry. It joins our annual EventCamp conference, the Tripleseat blog, and Party People as a way to bring together like-minded people to discuss, learn, and educate on how to plan and grow the event business.
After EventCamp 2016, Tripleseat CEO Jono Morse wanted to do something unique for this industry: create the first and only hospitality events industry magazine. The name Seated came to me immediately.
