Art Move Covers 3-7


Art Move Magazine was founded in July 2013 by Sara Kovanda to be Lincoln's premier artist driven visual magazine. Since its humble beginnings the magazine has won the 2014 Nebraska Art History award and its distribution has grown to include all of Nebraska.

The concept for Art Move's logo was to represent a window to, or a frame surrounding, a medium. It was also important that it be compact and scalable.

We found inspiration for the art direction in layouts of covers as well as individual editorials from some of the best designers in the industry. The goal was to be edgy while maintaining a direction which can accommodate a wide variety of mediums.

my contribution




+ readership



Since beginning my partnership with Sara Kovanda, Founder of ArtMove Magazine, we have increased readership 10 fold by creating a unified design theme, reader focused layout changes, and a concerted distribution effort. With every issue since Issue 3 the distribution has increased by 25%. With the publication of Issue 4 at the end of 2014 we were honored the Nebraska Art History Award.

Distribution has increased steadily and we are now in over 75 retail locations in and around both Lincoln and Omaha, Nebraska. Our advertising program has also gained traction and we are now being approached independently by businesses who would like to advertise in our upcoming issues.
