This was the cover of the launch issue of a complete redesign of the college's alumni magazine. The issue featured a package of stories about water. Middlebury, a small, top-tier liberal arts college located in Vermont, is known for its excellent language schools and its emphasis on English literature, so the focus on the words and typography on this cover seemed very appropriate. The cover-line was composed in Hoefler Titling, printed out, attached to the bottom of a clear tank of water and then photographed in the studio to capture the blurry, watery effect of the letterforms. Typeface: Hoefler.
