Symmetry Magazine

Everyday, symmetry online publishes new content and the next print edition is never too far off. All of which requires the art-direction of photo shoots, creating original illustrations and animations, and implementing updates to information architecture and user experience.

In 2004, Sandbox won the contract to design and produce the inaugural issue of symmetry Magazine, co-published by the premier national laboratories Fermilab and SLAC. In 2012 Sandbox collaborated with the editorial and web teams on the evolution of symmetry from a print publication with a complementary website, to a digital publication with bi-yearly print editions. As we approach symmetry’s eleventh year, symmetry Magazine has become Sandbox’s primary example of how to tell good stories visually. Additionally, symmetry is now one of the world’s most popular particle physics magazines and one of Sandbox’s proudest achievements.
