Today is a good day to start classes at AMFI because it is beautiful outside and it is the first day...so I guess it just has to be good. Finished with class at 12 and then went to the museum to get some inspiration for our first "homework", so before I go to my next class in an hour I thought I could write something for you on my blog.
Magazines are something really unique and interesting to me, so that is why I will talk about a project I did while being in my last year of High School in Austria (HTL Bau und Design).
When being a student in this school you have to do a final project that somehow involves everything you have learned about Graphic and Communication Design, so therefore my teammates and I chose to create an individual fashion magazine. Our main aim was to create a magazine that had absolutely nothing in common with magazines like Vogue, Elle, Harpers Bazaar, etc.
We wanted to stand out, we wanted to let images talk.To be honest, it was a really tough and time-consuming project to do besides attending school, but finally after 6 months we finished our magazine and called it *mute. We set focus on important and influential topics that inspired us and tried to build up a harmonious magazine from A to Z. It involved writing stories, taking photos and creating illustrations and information graphics to get the overall image of our magazine.
Take a look at some parts of the magazine below and if you are interested to read or learn more about *mute don't hesitate to contact me via email.
Team: Andreas Bucher, Alexandra Schwaiger and Laura Sinnhuber
Duration: +6 months (including research, design, layout, photo shoots, printing process, etc.)
Stay *mute and think squared :)
|Our magazine has a cover, which is a bubble wrapping envelope.|
Afterwards we used the space to add information with edding.
