I created, designed, edited, and copyedited the first ever print edition of Enculturation|Intermezzo — a refereed journal of rhetoric and culture.

Conceptually, this was a difficult project. The journal was/is internet-based, and I was asked to translate an active, hyperlinked website onto static sheets of paper. The editors at enculturation wanted multiple authors to "talk to one another inside the book" (as they might in the comment section of a blog). They wanted the design to reflect the digital hierarchy of a web 2.0 website: "paper digital."

The goal was to create an active discussion on the page, to do so in black and white, and to use minimal images.

I accomplished this task in Adobe InDesign, using footnotes, end notes, and some artsy tricks, drawing on comic books and other mediums as inspiration. The editors at enculturation liked the final product so much that they still use my template.

It was an honor to work with some of the most well-known rhetoricians in the academy. I am indebted to Bruce HornerCynthia Selfe,  Tim LockridgeCasey Boyle, and James Brown, Jr. Thanks for the positive feedback — and for the title: Associate Editor.
