The Wilson Journal Logotype features Ledger and Alize.
The Wilson Journal logo mark is simple, memorable, and distinguishable. It fits the eyes with a 2:1 width–height ratio.
The interior of the Wilson Journal uses no color. The exterior and web presence, however, use three main colors.
I wanted to provide the Journal's meaningful content with an straightforward reading experience. The typographic hierarchy helps make this possible: clearly defined header levels, highly-legible body text with ample leading, separated blockquotes, and discrete captions.

The Wilson Journal needed a consistent and pleasant reading experience—it's dense content providing enough of a challenge. To accomplish this, I used a six column grid structure and framed the content in plenty of white space.
The printed book needed to diverge from the Journal's past in a memorable way, and the cover helps accomplish this goal.
