McRay Magleby's and Norm Darais' Mythology Series

The Brainstorming Process
The Color Process
Trap Lines and Overlays

Norm's fascination with Greek mythology inspired this series, and it is considered the duo's best work. Mac researched Greek vase painting and used depictions of the myths as his design inspiration. Reducing classic tales into a few sentences with and unrushed cadence and alliterative elements capture the essence of each story evidencing Norm's editorial genius and command of the English language.

Listen to Mac, Norm, and printer Rory Robinson discuss this project in the audio clips above (courtesy of Brand & Creative Audio).
