Best in the Core #2


Art Direction / Winter 2019

In this special edition, we commemorate The Yard’s 5th anniversary by uncovering Downtown and Oliver’s cherished secrets, intriguing mysteries, hidden bargains, and abundant treasures. Join us as we embark on a journey through the lesser-known gems of these vibrant neighborhoods. Furthermore, we delve into the captivating history of a painting housed at the esteemed Royal Alberta Museum, unraveling its significance and the stories it holds.

To enhance the visual experience, I have incorporated dynamic 3D typography effects, meticulously hand-drawn editorials, and collaborated with the talented local photographer, William Frost, to provide stunning art direction for the Royal Alberta Museum piece. The combination of these artistic elements aims to captivate and immerse readers in the rich narratives unfolding throughout the issue.
