In 2011 I created the concept for Chickpea, a vegan food & writing quarterly. Inspired by working on my blog Hipsterfood, I went on to start our first issue in the fall of 2011. We're now on our 21st issue and sell in stores around the world.

My roles in the magazine include:

  • coming up with issue concepts, both in visuals and content
  • managing & selecting contributor features
  • directing artists & photographers in their final pieces
  • managing production schedules & our editorial calendar
  • copyediting
  • recipe testing & editing
  • photography, styling, and photo editing
  • hand lettering
  • issue design & edits
  • overseeing print production
  • social media (concepting, executing, scheduling, and managing comments & questions)
  • blogging (concepting, executing, scheduling, and managing comments & questions)
  • branding, packaging & ephemera design
  • concepting & creating further products related to the magazine

I'm currently available for publication design projects - please contact me at cara.lynne.x [at] for further info. <3
