Foreign Affairs Magazine


Foreign Affairs publishes issues on a bi-monthly basis and commissions one artist/collective per issue to create illustrations. Integrating motion and interaction were a new push at FA when I began. Pictured below are animated gifs I made using art by Heads of State accompanying feature articles for FA’s September Issue.

“How Poverty Ends,” Abhijit V. Banerjee and Esther Duflo

Present at the Disruption,” Richard Haass

“Putin the Great,” Susan B. Glasser

“Party Man,” Richard McGregor 


Every Friday, editors select six articles to post on FA’s Instagram stories. Using then Art Director Richard Baker’s visual system and color palette, I researched, edited, designed, and formatted photographs into mobile carousel graphics.

In addition to my design responsibilities, I wrote and edited one of FA’s newsletters, targetted to Peace Corps members and alumni. After designing the UI experience on Sailthru, I would write an introduction and schedule free FA articles to be sent every Saturday morning across the globe. I curated pieces which provided uncommon, deeper perspectives on the events of the cycle. At the end of my internship, the product saw a 30% increase in readership and click rate.

Mockups and final ads I illustrated for FA’s Holiday Campaign. This year’s marketing theme, “Give the gift of insight.”
