Below you will find my work in layout design. My hope is that you will get an understanding for my voice and style from the past and recent examples below:
I have been commissioned for an email newsletter in the past, and I’ve designed a few for my own use. You can find these designs (and their drafts) here.
Below is my senior seminar project, designed using Adobe Indesign CS6.
The assignment was to create an 8-page publication under a list of guidelines that followed a chosen thesis/topic. I decided to show not just how journalism is changing from print to multimedia, but how Millennials studying and entering the field can help make the transition a success.
I designed the entire project from scratch, curating photos, sources/quotes. I interviewed each source, wrote each piece, designed every page, did all of the graphics editing and copy-editing:
Below is a design internship I held during the summer of 2012, designing from scratch VSU’s undergraduate research journal Omnino using Adobe Indesign CS6. The pieces were given to me after they were peer reviewed by the university organization, and I created the book that was eventually printed and given out to the campus/contributors.
As well as the two larger projects above, as editor for the independent, student newspaper The Spectator, part of the editorial staff’s job was to copy-edit and design a weekly newspaper. Below is an example of broadsheet I designed during my time as Editor-in-Chief—designed using QuarkXpress 9. (You can find more issues linked below these examples.)
