The Protagonist

Illustration & Layout

The Protagonist is a quarterly membership magazine produced by Research Media for the Association of Research Managers and Administrators (ARMA). The design utilises 'Futura' and 'The Serif', a font paring that is both classic and contemporary; as well as a bespoke horizontal grid and architechtural dividers.

The original 'look and feel' of the magazine was designed in-house for Research Media by designer Suzie Eland. For the following pieces, I read and interpreted the profession-based subject matter to create striking imagery that was at the same time creative, and in line with the orginal pitch.



Different sections of the magazine are denoted by a strict color palette of the ARMA brand green and a small selection of complementary colours.

The subject matter covered in this selection surrounds measuring the impact of academic research, export controls, gender initiatives, technology and big data.
