The Australian PhotoJournalist publication is a project run by the photography department and photo journalist students of the Queensland College of Art, Griffith University. Liveworm has been providing the design of the publication since it’s inception.
The 2010 edition design was created by students Jasmin de la Vega Cruz and Shaelah Ariotti. This edition consisted of twenty photographic ‘stories’ submitted from various photojournalists from around the globe. These stories were all concerned with the theme of this issue: The Rights of the Child and featured photographers Lihee Avidan, Wend Lear, Steve Liss, Lukasz Sokol, Colby Katz, Mariella Furrer, Robin Hammond, Yuri Kozyrev, Paul Fusco, Justin Maxon, Gerd Ludwig, William Daniels, Ed Kashi, G.M.B. Akash, Alfredo Falvo, Annie Tritt, Meredith O’Shea, Michal Novotny, Dana Popa and Jonas Bendiksen. Photojournalist students of QCA contacted these photographers at the beginning of the project, selected and edited the photos provided and contributed introductions to each story.
As each story had it’s own unique subject, history and photographic style, it was decided the design approach had to follow a similar path. Each title page was designed to reflect the story while also holding together as a cohesive publication. To further emphasise the often tactile and gritty subjects and images, a great deal of the design was created using a combination of digital and manual processes. Often a title would be digitally typeset, printed, manually manipulated, rescanned and redigitally manipulated to aquire a suitable treatment. Doing so created a large range of typefaces, textures, shapes and layouts — a visual language unique to this publication.
