Behind the Scenes
Art Director Chris Meligonis wanted to do something a little different for the cover of the Food Issue. He came up with the idea to spell out the Lynchburg Living masthead with seasonal fresh foods.
To accomplish the “L,” he made pasta from scratch with egg and flour and cranked it out in a pasta maker. Then, he let the noodles partially dry on a rack before the photo shoot.
Then, in the home office’s photo studio, Chris laid out his design on a piece of glass over the masthead to get the perfect shape. He and photographer, Dave Uhrin, took photographs and made sure proportions were just right.
Keeping to the theme of the issue, Chris incorporated this design on other pages throughout the magazine—including the adjacent Food News page.
