Composure Magazine’s Ultimate Gift Guide

composure magazine ultimate gift guide

Today, just some eye candy from a holiday gift guide story I worked on with Composure‘s contributing fashion editor, Min A. Lee (who also laid out the story). I love putting together style and beauty pages, coordinating the colors and silhouettes that will result in a harmonious story, both visually and substantively. While I’m not a graphic designer or artist by any stretch of the imagination, I do enjoy the “collage” aspect of the process.
