When 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, she has created these works purely for her own creative enjoyment; as a way to get her hands dirty and clear her 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, Elena Miska designed a layout that highlighted the artwork, created a custom logo, and sprinkled in several typographic treatments whose phrases came from notes she had jotted down over the past few months as things to do or remember. All three days of the live stream replay can be viewed on YouTube.
