Breaking from the traditional informative role of a zine, Vapor occupies a parallel dimension of our capitalistic, technologically-driven universe. Influenced by the vaporwave and cyberpunk movements, the zine explores the intersection of these aesthetics and creative advertising in an explosive, neon fusion of typography and photography. Saturated, long-exposure imagery throughout this zine emphasizes the fluid, rapidly changing environment sponsored by urban and corporate development. Indeed, Vapor is a taste of this strange world, where the names of cities and celebrities might be the same but the sun never fully rises, stoking fears of the inability to escape from the city. Doused in purple hues and embedded with splashes of bright pink, this series of fabricated advertisements and photographic spreads offer a glimpse into an imagined dystopian future of technological uncertainty and excitement. This journey is not for the faint of heart.
Created with Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator, & InDesign. 2020.
