"Marvel Throwback" is a comic reading media service that contains a personal dashboard, which provides information about reading habits and offers recommendations.

Target audience

Young marvel comic lovers who are looking for a hero with whom to identify.

Design concept

To give the reader an authentic and nostalgic experience, I have based my design on the iconic red colour of Marvel’s logo and kept the dots pattern, font and colour palette of uncoated paper that brings out the text and the images.

Name & logo

In choosing the title "Marvel Throwback" I refer both to the seemingly eternal life of marvel comics while reminiscing on the nostalgia that it evokes in us. The traditional marvel font, colour and shadow were perfect for this aim.


This comic reading media service enables the reader to share their experience with their friends. The site is made engaging and accessible by the interactive dashboard.
