    SDSU Month Special Issue
  • The Daily Aztec is San Diego State University’s student-run newspaper. It releases four issues a week during the academic year. As assistant art director, I make design decisions for the general layout of the newspaper as well as the bi-monthly special issues which highlight editorial themes like sports, music, food,and entertainment.
  • I was assigned to create a special issue in celebration of SDSU Month which commemorates the university’s achieve-ments and its leaders. I created illustrations of SDSU’s major landmarks like Hepner Hall, Hardy Tower, the Dome Library, the Turtle Pond, and SDSU’s iconic palm trees.
  • The layout included a standard five column grid; justified paragraphs; and customized bylines, headlines, captions, photographic treatments and pull quotes. The illustrations were used to break up the text.
