Elena Miska creates Zenzine, a print magazine of collages, doodles and art for Adobe

When New York City designer Elena Miska was asked by Adobe to participate in a three-day graphic design live stream on AdobeLive.com, she decided it was the perfect opportunity to give her recent collages, doodles and art projects a home by designing a zine in which they could all live.

"Over the past year, I've created these works purely for my own creative enjoyment; as a way to get my hands dirty and clear my head at the same time, without the fear of trying to achieve perfection. With this concept in mind, Zenzine was born out of the desire to show these physical collages and paintings in an equally tactile but still unassuming form: a printed zine.

"Over the course of the three-day session, I designed a layout that highlighted the artwork, created a custom logo, and sprinkled in several typographic treatments whose phrases came from notes I'd jotted down over the past few months as things to do or remember."

A designer, art director and artist, Elena's work ranges from identities, print and digital design to conceptual collages and photo art direction. You can discover more of her work at elenamiska.com.
