Sample Hartford Magazine cover

Hartford Magazine cover celebrating the first anniversary of the publication and comprised of images used on the first 12 covers.

CTCC cover and original images

Hartford Magazine cover featuring a composite image of the Connecticut Convention Center. Looking for a compelling cover image, we set-up a photo shoot of the construction on a cold, dreary winter day which aligned with the artist's rendering of the completed project. Photo by Michael J. Fiedler. 

Hartford Magazine cover celebrating The Bushnell Center for the Performing Art's 75th Anniversary. For the story, we were given multiple black & white photos dating back to the construction of the theater. Taking the detail of the theater's ceiling, I employed a rich red, often associated with stage curtains and velvety seats, and printed the masthead and text with metallic gold ink.
