These are editorial proposals for the second issue of my ILM (Intellectual Lifestyle Magazine).
This issue of ILM would explore a conflict (for example, Israel -Palestine) with the same rigorous, academic investigation as beforewith the topic of hijaab. Given how this publication breaks down anissue, I thought it would be interesting to further reflect this unique“journalism” in the design and aesthetic by opening every new articleprofiling an individual “involved” in the conflict with the initials oftheir name (in Arabic).
As well as an overview and history of the politics, geography andpopulation of the region, the magazine would engage the issue on agrass roots level, conducting in-depth interviews with leading membersof governmental, political and militant factions on both sides to gaugehow the situation has been affected by those leading the charge onvarious fronts and more importantly, individuals of all ages andbackgrounds who make up the rich population of this comparatively,small geography �" to introduce the perspective of those whose lives areaffected by the decisions of their respective leaders or leaders ofnations around the world.
