Project Insights

I created this magazine from the ground up, my primary learning task was to understand the components of a magazine and how they work as a system. I also had to learn about many issues that the Canadian film and television industry faces in order to create enough content for the first 12 issues. Throughout the project I learned a lot about the importance of establishing rules to make the production cycle as quick and as painless as possible.

Problem Solved

The challenge posed here was to create a film industry magazine for English-speaking Canada that had high production values that communicated sophistication and optimism. I solved the problem by researching what was currently out in the market and then differentiating myself from these offerings by designing an industry magazine aimed at a younger millennials audience and using branded freebies like unique 3D glasses.
