In collaboration with photographer Xiangyao “Axe” Tang, these covers and center spread were created for the October 2022 “Timeless” Issue. A reader begins with the University of Utah’s past, where the first half of articles highlight and discuss the history of the U and the Salt Lake area. At the center spread, the reader flips the paper to then start at the back cover, or the future.
