Status Update | Ball Magazine was a project facilitated by the Baltimore City Health Department and the Social Design Department at the Maryland Institute College of Art. We collaborated to create a publication that was designed specifically f’or the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans community that is so commonly found in the Ball Scene. The magazine was designed to deviate away from the typical health department pamphlet that is so commonly found in doctors offices and health clinics. We wanted to create something relatable as well as useful. Creating articles about sexual health, encouraging treatment seeking behavior as well as highlighting various individuals within this community.
Preliminary drafts that were presented to the client and participants in focus groups to determine the art direction of the project.
