August 2011 issue
Working closely with Andre Mora (Design Director) and Chris Skiles (Associate Design Director), I helped design department pages, edited illustrations for features and pull out map, found and edited photography used in final publication, and provided helpful and productive feedback during design process. The fast turn around time needed for magazine publication has helped me become a more confident designer. I've learned that I can work quickly while still trusting my visual judgement and put forth good design.
September 2011 issue
I designed department pages, created illustrations, researched and edited photography, and contributed to the overall design of the issue.
