Morningstar magazine is the next evolution of Morningstar Advisor magazine. Its target audience expanded to include institutional investors from purely financial advisors. The entire publication was redesigned in 2014 to highlight this move. I worked closely with the editorial team to restructure and expand the magazine's content, and guided a team of designers in the redesign of the publication. In honor of the redesign, I drew custom characters for the new title mast. The June/July 2014 issue was the debut of the redesign.
As the magazine's art director, I source and direct a network of illustrators and photographers from around the world. I oversee the work of staff designers, and also do design work myself.
