Tracksmith: Meter Magazine 

Magazine
2021

Magazine redesign and art direction for Tracksmith’s Meter Magazine, a longform publication about the hidden side of running culture. Overhauling its original broadsheet format, the redesign sought to lengthen shelf life of the magazine, featuring a printed cloth tape spine with the table-of-contents running off the edges to allow for readers to quickly browse past issues at a glance.

Completed with Doubleday and Cartwright: creative direction by Aaron Amaro, and photo editing by Shane Lyons. Special thanks to Rafa Oliveira and Andy Waterman of the Tracksmith team. Photography of magazines by Shane Lyons. Printed in Portugal by Maiadouro.
