WEEK 2 - Thursday, July 19, 2007

This week the class got feedback from the meeting last Friday.
There will be more spreads to present to the client, but the presentation has been pushed back until week 8.

Today the class also got to choose which magazine we would be designing.
I'm helping with the San Fransisco Chefs magazine and have posted a link to the old DC/SF Chefs website on the left, or you can check it out here.

WEEK 1 - Thursday, July 12, 2007

Last class was a casual introduction to the syllabus and a good chance for everyone to get to know each other better. We all took an excursion to Starbuck’s for coffee and conversation. Today the class reviewed the overall project and voiced concerns that will be addressed in a meeting this Friday with the client.

I'm anxious to get started with the actual content, and have begun drafting mock layouts and grids to keep myself occupied. I'm also reviewing the past issues and marking them up in order to write a more formal critique for next week. I have been researching other culinary publications to get a better feel for how it's readers might "digest" the content...
