Magazine Concepts

During his college career, Jathan became passionate about magazine publishing and design. He worked on two huge projects which he is very proud of, Icon and Verge. Both publications were labors of love that he and his teams created for two very different audiences. Enjoy exploring his collection of files for each publication.


For Icon, Jathan collaborated with co-editors Ben Grewe and Chip Reeves to develop the magazine’s concept. Icon is a men’s magazine that is representative of the American Male. As the mission statement says, “It helps him make sense of his chaotic life by providing him with the tools he needs to stay in touch with current trends, to find his own sense of style and to create balance between his commitments to family, career and self.” Watch Icon’s video presentation or peruse the proposal, content inventory and even the first issue’s table of contents.



Verge, on the other hand, is a magazine for twenty-somethings that stand at that point in their lives when they must transition from college to career. As the Editor-In-Chief, Jathan worked with a wonderful team of creative minds (pictured below) to develop this product.  Get a glimpse into the magazine’s vision by watching the preview video below.
