Description

Since 2012, I’ve been designing Hallowed Ground magazine. Hallowed Ground is the quarterly membership publication of the American Battlefield Trust http://www.Battlefields.org. The Trust protects, preserves, and purchases battlefield land from the American Revolution, the War of 1812, and the American Civil War. The publication has very quickly become a treasure trove of incredible photography from amateur, semi-pro and professional photographers from all over the US, UK, Canada and even the Philippines. It’s frequently featured on the Society of Publication Designers website and has received numerous SPD Merits and Medal nominations since I redesigned the magazine.
