‘20 Years of Creativity, Culture, and Community’ by Taylor McCumber

Taylor McCumber is a graphic designer for Volume One.

“20 Years of Creativity, Culture, and Community” (2022) by Taylor McCumber • How do you encapsulate 20 years? For us, it was by going bold to emphasize the core themes that have driven Volume One for the past two decades: creativity, culture, and community. The color scheme for our anniversary issue’s cover is simple, drawing on the black-and-white of Volume One’s logo (not to mention our earliest issues) combined with the yellow and cyan highlights that have been part of the magazine since our redesign in 2020. Look in the background, and you’ll find words and icons that touch on many of the things we’ve undertaken and promoted in the community over the years. For more on Volume One’s history, check out the timeline in the July 28 print issue.

Volume One finds its cover art in a number of ways, from local art shows to random emails to knowing someone who knows someone who knows a great artist. The art always originates from a current or former Chippewa Valley resident. If you'd like to submit cover art, send us a message.
