  • DSGN Magazine
    Live Learn Follow, Spring 2012
  • DSGN is an informational digest for young creatives, ages 20–30. It is a tool to help you become immersed into the professional design world. Some magazines that would bookend ours would be CommArts and Print.

    Design Field Focuses:

    Industrial Design
    Graphic Design

    The magazine is broken down into three parts: Live, Learn and Follow.

    Live is all about how to help you live your life creatively. From what design objects you just have to have to creative cities across the country, this category will give you suggestions to keep you inspired.

    is here to teach you. Don’t worry, it’s not like school, it’s interesting. We teach you how to organize your studio, ace your presentation and how to become a business professional.

    Follow is our way to show you who you should keep your eye out for in the design world in order to stay inspired. We featured two different designers that are meant to inspire, teach, and show you where you can go with your careers.

    This was a group project. Check out my fellow group members on Behance.
    Eric Norton, Micaela Clarke, Daniel Held and Sam Willger

    Each member of the design team was instructed to create a two page department, an eight page feature story, two advertisements, as well as work together to create the table of contents, contributors page etc. Below are my contributions to the magazine.

  • In addition to the magazine, the group also created a style guide in which we outline the visual elements used in our magazine in order to make recreation of the magazine easy for other parties and to ensure the maintenance of the DSGN brand and visual aesthetic.
