2022 marks the first issue of GQ Germany since Condé Nast restructured to a centralized global content strategy. About half the magazine is now comprised of syndicated stories. I was assigned to produce the other half, about eighty pages of original German fashion and feature editorial. Central to the new design direction is the use of hand-rendered display treatments. I sought to find a balance between the whimsical executions of the U.S. version and the austere and minimal purity of the German gestalt. As an arts issue, features included a profile of veteran Magnum photographer Thomas Höpker battling Alzheimers by retracing his past through the lens of the present and a focus on conceptual automotive creations from a purely sculptural perspective.
