Rise is a magazine created to tell the stories of student activists at the University of Central Florida who are doing advocacy work on campus and beyond. In parallel, these issues also serve to answer the question of what a portrait could look like of a person if the medium was an editorial design rather than traditional painting.
The logo for Rise evokes the movement and dynamism present in student activism using a bold, sans-serif typeface sheared diagonally paired with the three lines which suggest speed and quickness.
The three issues designed for Rise utilize different monochromatic color schemes paired with custom paper options to characterize the personality of each activist being interviewed. The look and feel is a blend of zines printed on risograph and contemporary editorial design.
ISSUE 1 | KAREN CAUDILLO
ISSUE 2 | CAMERON MOLYNEUX
ISSUE 3 | MAEVE COSGROVE
The posters follow the same grid system for each activist interviewed, paired with a variation of a phrase beginning with "rise" which aligns with the interests and social justice issues advocated for by each subject.
With every order of Rise, an information card is included which explains the goal of Rise and a brief summary of the subject.
Each issue would be delivered inside of an envelope which matches the color scheme of each issue. Inside the envelope a poster and subscription card is included.
