My name is Bryan Bumgardner, and because you like my blog enough to click the about page, I love you.
This is blog about magazines – specifically, magazine design.
As magazines evolve into some weird digital mashup of hard journalism and cat videos, designers are exploring new territory. Some are doing great work; others are smashing their faces on the keyboard on deadline.
I like to read magazines then critique, criticize, and croon over them. Sometimes I smear some irreverent pop culture references into the mix.
I overthink magazines for you so hopefully you’ll see them in the same way I do: as powerful, artistic litmus tests of human cultures.
I also love to talk. Let’s chat.
I have a portfolio of design work. (Still under construction.)
I have email: BryanBumgardner@gmail.com.
I’m a college senior at West Virginia University’s P.I. Reed School of Journalism, where once upon a time they plastered my face on the school website. I have a full resume that’s going to be posted here soon.
