Sept '16 - April '17
"First Impressions" is InPrint Magazine's first annual issue! Officially, my role in this project was to obtain funding and publicity for our magazine, so that we could print them and also sell well. However, behind the scenes, I did a little bit of everything (photography, interviewing, transcribing, editing, critiquing, brainstorming, etc) wherever I was needed.
After endless sessions of brainstorming, we settled on the theme “first impressions”, fitting for our first issue! In using our magazine as a platform to feature amazing individuals from the design community, we hoped this issue would introduce the design community to one another
This issue was our "first impression" to the world of design at Davis.
Our "First Impression"
... to the world of design at Davis.
Our issue featured 4 different kinds of articles. Examples of each are shown below.
My role was to come up with different marketing strategies to raise awareness for our release!
01: pre-order ad
This was sent out through various email newsletters to spread the word!
03: photo campaign
We asked members questions about their "firsts" (ex 1st design crush) for this campaign!
02: fun facts
We asked interviewees for fun facts to reveal their features on our page!
04: magazine sneak peeks
We showed "sneak peeks" of our mag by posting some cropped mockups of spreads!
05: the team
Huge thanks to InPrint's 2016-17 team for making our first issue possible!
