American Chordata

Services provided: Layout & cover design (Issues 1-8)
Art director: Bobby Doherty

American Chordata is a biannual literary and arts magazine that's beautiful to look at; packed with bright voices in fiction, essay, poetry, art, and photography. I was there from day one setting up the internal structure and cover design. I have recently passed the torch to my friends at No Ideas.

People have said some nice things about the magazine over the years.

Highbrow and brilliant.
- New York Magazine

Easily the best (and best looking new literary magazine on the stand.)
-AIGA Eye on Design

A brilliantly designed literary magazine that sidesteps smug melodrama.
-It’s Nice That
