For my Design for Journalists classes, I had to create a layout for a fictive magazine. I chose to create a magazine that focuses on the night life of Philadelphia. It is geared toward the new middle class – new college graduates, grad students, and those beginning their career in the City of Brotherly Love. If it were a real magazine, it would feature reviews on restaurants, bars, venues, shows, etc. It is modeled after a high fashion magazine, and aims to celebrate life after dark in this exciting city.
I made up an article about the Rim Café and the owner René Kobietri. In a perfect world, I’d have filled the page with a real article that would run onto another page, but this was merely a lesson in design.
René is such a great guy. He made my magazine cover his Facebook profile picture!!! It’s a hit!
