This is a magazine prototype with every aspect created by Melissa Riggs—from the concept for the magazine to story generation, photography, copy, layout and design. 

Amity expands notions of contemporary lifestyles by delivering unexpected vantage points, offering attainable methods of coping with modern stresses, and ultimately cultivating engagement in family and community.


This publication aims to raise the compassion quotient in societies through in-depth photographic narratives and personal stories. By introducing aspects of others’ lives in a visually rich and open forum, this publication fosters linkages through common interests, empathy and inspiration.

The content takes the reader beyond the obvious, to first-hand encounters and connections with alternative family dynamics, innovative education methods and memorable lives.
