Drake Magazine is a student-run Midwest magazine for the plugged in 20-something at Drake University. As Art Director, I was able to create page templates and worked with talented art team. I oversaw all production of pages and photo shoots, and thought out ideas for art and photography for each story in the mag. Drake Magazine is bi-annual and funded by the Drake University of Board of Student Communications.
Pure Pregnancy Magazine was a project for my magazine publishing class. The project was to create a business plan and a 24-page prototype for a new magazine. The business plan included audience research, a five-year budget, and editorial concept. For the prototype, I came up with an art concept, designed the pages, and chose the photographs. Some photos and advertisements do not belong to me.
Being a Magazine Journalism double major, I have been able to write for Drake Magazine, an on-campus bi-annual magazine while working on the design side as well.
As a Graphic Designer for the St. Louis based content creatation company, Influence & Co., I have created numerous whitepages for national companies. I also have been able to design promoational posters for campus organizations, the School of Journalism and Mass Communications and a local real estate agent. I look forward to working with new clients.
