Panic At The Discourse
Visual identity design for “Panic At The Discourse”; an online interdisciplinary publication highlighting social and cultural study and critique, founded by three Queen’s University scholars in Kingston, Ontario. Panic At The Discourse publishes articles and reviews of books, digital media, music, films, television, art, and events while highlighting relations of power, social justice, and social change. The publication seeks to publish writers with new and innovative ways of theorizing that do not necessarily fit within traditional frameworks. Fittingly for the genre, the name, Panic At The Discourse is a cheeky pop culture reference to the band, Panic At The Disco. While appealing to the age demographic of the graduate students and early-career professionals who Panic At The Discourse seeks to publish, the name helps this publication stand out among the more traditional academic publications of it’s kind.
