Sword & Scales is a quarterly magazine published by the Pacific Legal Foundation, a nonprofit legal organization that defends Americans’ liberties against government overreach and abuse. Every issue focuses on a different aspect of American life and how it intersects with the law and PLF’s work. The Iron Light design team works with PLF to create a visually compelling theme that conveys the thesis of each article, and also unifies all of the articles in the magazine. Photo collage is a common style we use with this work because it allows us to directly reference all the different aspects of American life, as well as utilize the beautiful photography that PLF provides.
