Publication Design, 2021–2022
Fnewsmagazine is an award winning campus magazine for School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and as the new art director of Fnewsmagazine, I am in charge for the designs of the monthly issues.
This is a collection of the print issues produced through 2021–2022, which brought us awards for best designs and illustrations by the Pinnacle Contest of the College Media Association, and the ACP Pacemaker Awards .
As students are slowing moving back on campus, Fnews brought back the print based format. As a result, our team's work flow was re-directed to adapt to those changes to reach a wider audience.
Our team of 6 designers gathered and presented references and inspirations for the issue, and we discussed and narrowed down to a list of few concepts we liked and thought worth a try.
Each month, the designers and editors gather at the F Newsmagazine office to power through press production. As the art director, I hosted multiple rounds of critiques and provided design suggestions to student designers to improve their layout designs and typesetting.
Below are my own layout and cover designs from the issues, many of which have won me national and international awards.
