Wormhole Magazine

graphic, print, identity

Wormhole Magazine is a magazine concept for curious intellectuals looking for invisible connections. All titles, subtitles, and pull-quotes are intentional and written by me. All body copy is nonsense filler.

The Summer 2020 issue is dedicated to climate change and is developed to include the following: Table of contents, letter from the editor, departments (2), and feature articles (3). 

The logo is a stylized spelling of the word “WORMHOLE.” The two letter o’s are represented by the counters of the letters R and e, so it appears as “WRMHLE” at first (tilt your head to the left). The two counters also represent the entrance and exit of the figurative wormhole.

The tagline of the magazine references the final lyrics from the 1967 Jeffereson Airplane song “White Rabbit,” which employs imagery from Lewis Caroll’s book Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland to depict a hallucinogenic experience. “FEED YOUR HEAD” is a mating call to the intellectual reader who’s willing to get a little lost and transgressive.

ds2 = c2dt2+dl2+(k2+l2)(dθ2+sin2θdφ2) (seen on the margin of every right page) is a traversable wormhole metric by H. G. Ellis.
