Students in this exciting course will extend their creativity to create a professionally structured magazine from concept to print-ready files. Through research and case studies, students will inspect magazine design elements and learn how context and message differentiate varying genres. Students will create covers, logos, table of contents pages, feature pages, and department sections. Typography, layout, illustration, photography, infographics, grids, white space, headlines, and body copy will all become familiar elements in students’ editorial design vocabulary. How to package editorial material into a cohesive on-brand style will be emphasized.
