ReadyMade, Meredith Corporation Meredith Corporation is a media and marketing company which focuses on magazine and book publishing, television broadcasting, integrated marketing and interactive media. It’s magazine division features 21 subscription magazines including Better Homes and Gardens, Family Circle and Ladies’ Home Journal.
ReadyMade magazine is a publication of the Meredith Corporation and focuses on do-it-yourself projects with an emphasis on sustainable design and recycling by promoting reusing and repurposing materials. While working at ReadyMade magazine I had the opportunity to participate in all aspects of the design of the magazine. I assisted with the art direction, propping, and set creation of photo shoots. I have designed layouts for many stories appearing in the magazine as well as assisted the art director proofing final images.
Also, I designed the ReadyMade100, a special print-on-demand edition of the magazine as part of a collaborative effort with the senior graphic designer. Together we redesigned the magazine’s template to work with the size constraints of the print-on-demand book. I designed the page layouts of 50 of the 100 projects in the book, and prepared the final files for the printer.
