What is Full Bleed?

Full Bleed is an art and design journal published annually by the Maryland Institute College of Art. The journal's goal is to publish written and visual work from contemporary artists and designers that creates a discussion around a specific subject/topic. This year I had the opportunity to be apart of 9 person design team that consisted of MFA and BFA students from Graphic Design, Illustration, and Film/Photo practices. This broad variety of talents and ideas was sometimes challenging but also extremely rewarding. Our Design team worked under the guidance of Jason Lancaster (Creative Director, Washingtonianand collaborated with the editorial team instructed by Paul Jaskunas (Published Author, Editor, and former journalist/publicist). Below are a few pieces of the publication I was able to design independently.

Final / Robot Drone - Terry Wright

"In his digital monochrome work, artist Terry Wright captures forms frozen in moments of vivid action and intense energy. Within some compositions, lines slice like knife slash and contours smash together with supercollider force. In others, softer shapes flow organically or iterate in patterns. The following works are selected from a monochrome series featuring a "robot drone" that the artist imagines has evolved into sentience. Each image envisions the drone undergoing a seminal human experience or crisis."

Terry Wright, Robot Drone Arrives on Target, 2018.

Terry Wright, Robot Drone Suffers Back Problems, 2018.
