Colibrí Magenta's magazine it's a project that took around four months.  These magazine its mostly build on spreads and a few individual pages, in which each piece reflects the content's personality.  In its Second edition, Colibri Magenta collaborated with "Follow Control" and the festival of wine "Festival Toma Vino Mexicano 20." Therefore, pieces about wine and leisure dominate the editorial content. In contrast, the essential article of the magazine it's about Tatiana Clouthier; hence the cover page only carries a picture of her showing her character and small text highlighting the article "Festival Toma Vino Mexicano 20.
 Between 2 or 4 proposals were made for each piece to ensure synergy between design and content. Only in a little case, a first proposal was chosen.
Front Cover and back Cover 
Final Proposal of the Front Cover.
Around ten proposals wee made for the front cover, due to the importance of the content. The combination of photos and text should not be in the way of each other. On the contrary, the aim was to create an elegant and pleasant cover
Credits and brand presentation
Final Proposal of the Index
Both proposals of the index aim to highlight the brand's nature. In the end, the spread on the right was chosen since the detain within the picture is more discreet.
The general director of Colibri Magenta is Trilce Acosta, as she writes the editorial letter and many of the pieces in the magazine, it's only natural that she appears in this spread. (Special thank you for letting me collaborate in this project, I absolutely love it)
Proposals of the editorial letter with her photograph included.

Final Proposal of "Conoce a Edgar Nieto y Mar de Fondo"

Final and only proposal of "Got my Job" 

Got my Job its about the possibility of using gothic style to go to work, not only the headline tents to express the content, but also the background and picture at the right corner.
Final and only proposal of "Que es el e-commerce de moda"
"Que es el e-commerce de moda" is an article intended to be serious and easy to read, so the content is divided into bullets with each section marked by the style of the titles. Even so, in order not to fall into monotony, the photos serve to break the square style of the design.

This article was first proposed as a single spread, but it was worth to highlight the essential points of Tatiana and create an extra spread as an introduction to the content. 
Final and only Proposal of the first spread : "Resveratrol"
Final and only Proposal of the Second spread : "Resveratrol"

Final and only Proposal of : "El Gran Laslo Loszola"
The tones of colours for this article were also extracted from the photographs of the restaurant. The layout is rectangular and quite simple and sober.
Final and only Proposal of  : "Follow Control"
For the design of Follow control, there were two proposals, in which the importance of the article was to highlight the photographs of the event's guests.
