The Chronicles of Now

We partnered directly with TCoN’s founder to bring his vision to life through gorgeous design.

About The Client

Chronicles of Now is a publication featuring short fiction written rapidly in response to current events: A new way of understanding the headlines, stories, and people shaping our world.

Challenge

Founder Tyler Cabot approached us with the ambitious vision of building an entirely new publication. Our friends Works Well With Others created a sharp visual identity and logo treatment, and our job was to integrate that into a structure reminiscent of a news site while maintaining the editorial quality of a print magazine.

Solution

We created a design inspired by traditional magazine and newspaper style – free of ads and clutter. We integrated beautiful hand-drawn illustrations by Joe McKendry with cute callouts. The design is stark, clean, and readable, allowing the top-class writing to shine.

Result

  • Helped map and design a site that was not only a new publication, but a new type of publication
  • Integrated subscription management software
  • Post-launch, cloned and repurposed the site for use as a nonprofit therapy tool
