Glam is a magazine about the 80’s mayhem of the sunset strip.

A time of sex, drugs and rock & roll all mashed down in to one magazine. I wanted to explore how I could communicate chaos and disorder in a format that is typically built on rules and order. The typography is inspired from the band logos and magazines of the time. The slanted Futura and Gothic style headlines creates a perfect balance between heavy metal and scandalous tabloids. Rasterized images and faded background colors gives the feeling of cheap xerox flyers plastered all over the strip from the hundreds of bands trying to be the next big thing. There is also a lot in the details, the heavy metal “horn” gesture indicating the article continues, and black electrical tape strips used to tape the setlist to the monitors.
