Halfstack was an independent culture magazines focused on and dedicated to the local Chicago community. We showcased musicians, designers, boutiques, brands, artists, local entrepreneurs & social changers who are on the rise because of the impact they are making and the hard work they are putting into their craft.
I founded the brand in 2012 and for 6 years acted as lead creative director and publisher. My work spanned from coordinating photoshoots, directing a staff of 20 plus writers and graphic designers, to designing layouts and writing articles. Halfstack was truly a labor of love that helped me hone my creative eye and grow and develop my skills as a graphic designer.
