UMG is a magazine which will represent the Graphic Design Department of the University of Lapland, Finland. The content is in both Finnish and English, and it is about general graphic design issues. It was done as a student project for the Publishing Design course, and every student was involved in its creation. I have created the logo, cover design/illustrations and the poster. Also, I've illustrated a double spread, since each student had to write a graphic design related article and to do illustrations for one of the articles. During one of the meetings, my colleagues proposed that it'd be interesting to have some kind of a "fairy tale" to spice up the magazine's content, and which could also go well with my illustration style. As I'm not too skilled when it comes to writing I've asked my lovely girlfriend for help, so she wrote a very sweet short story, inspired by the North and the magical aurora, entitled "Underneath the Reflection".
Overall, it was a great experience and the magazine turned out pretty well too ;).
