Bad and Bourgeois explores the ideals that make editorial design feel luxurious, and examines how they have evolved to suit the way we consume information in the digital era.

Inspired by Mehemed Fehmy Agha's and Alexey Brodovitch's contributions to high-end editorial design in the 1930's, my degree project explores how the concepts they introduced may be used to revitalize luxury publications.

My reimagining of Town and Country magazine emphasizes the inclusivity of digital platforms, allowing for the continued balance between exclusivity and accessibility that allows luxury brands to flourish.
