Background: This prototype magazine was designed, conceptualized and produced in a Magazine Editing and Production course at the University of Arkansas. Throughout this process I learned about magazine history, the different kinds of magazines and the current trends in magazine publishing. I learned to think critically in researching potential audiences and markets and to use this information in creating the content and look for my publication.
Design Solution: In this course, I visualized a magazine targeted toward women between ages 18-30 who want to decorate their apartments stylishly on a budget. These women could be university students or young professionals. One of the main ideas or problems that this magazine was to solve is the issue of space. Usually young women are living in smaller spaces, therefore this magazine, "Coordinate," aimed at helping these women make the most out of the space they have available on their budget. I decided on the stories, chose stock photos and designed the layout based on the target audience and what they would be attracted to.
