The Gear Patrol Magazine
Debuting in October 2015, Gear Patrol's print edition is a bi-annual 300-page book that highlights the absolute best of what the publication can do. Each issue has focused on between 3 and 7 locations and the people, products and experiences that make them great. Highlights have included Heli-skiing in British Columbia, surfing in Sri Lanka, driving alone on the the world's most notorious racetrack in western Germany and eating far too much barbecue in central Texas.
My responsibility since planning for issue one began in the summer of 2015 was to source, produce and oversee all of the imagery in each issue. This has ranged from coordinating on-location freelance production from afar, sending photographers to various corners of the globe and personally traveling to at least one location per issue and shooting the cover stories for issues one, three and four. Each issue has also featured production for our in-house creative studio: GPS. Clients have included Indian Motorcycles, Danner Boots, Fjallraven, The North Face, Bell & Ross, and Tudor Watches. The magazine has won Folio Ozzie awards in 2016 for Best overall magazine design and best new magazine (Under 250k circulation), a MIN award for Best New Magazine Launch and a Communication Arts award for Best Editorial Design.
