Abstract Magazine-Issue8

Abstract Magazine is an award-winning print publication that celebrates the local lifestyle and culture of Hawai'i. Each issue focuses on a single theme that is explored through the use of essays, interviews, profiles, photography, illustration, and design.

For Issue 8, I was in charge of designing the epilogue which discussed how outsiders often view Hawai'i through "rose-tinted glasses" or "paradise-tinted glasses", creating an alternate reality of what Hawai'i is truly like for its residents. The use of colors and lines in the illustration represent a light spectrum, and show how a colors value can be perceived differently from person to person depending on one's perspective.
