SubStories

SubStories is a magazine that puts a spotlight on the subcultures of Toronto and its creators.

Publication Design

SubStories, the first edition, showcases the works of 6 creators (3 photographers and 3 cosplayers) as well as a short excerpt on why they do what they do. To educate and promote embracing difference. The people actively participating in subcultures and defying the norm should be able to tell their stories without judgement. Therefore, the editorial piece I was tasked with producing transformed into a tool for others to speak of their past, ambitions, fears, and passion. Even if this magazine fails to achieve its goal of spreading awareness, I believe it can still give those featured a sense of pride in doing what they love.
