Issue 03: IMPACT

editorial, BRANDING

Sept '18 - April '19

"IMPACT" is InPrint Magazine's third annual issue! (Check out our first and second issues) 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.

01: theme

“IMPACT” hones in on the sociopolitical effects design can have on our communities. With intentional design decisions, our work can propel change towards justice and liberation. However, when we forget to critically examine our choices or intentionally trade ethics for profits, it can have lasting negative impacts on the status quo and even people’s livelihoods. 

This year’s theme tackles the issue of sustainability across multiple sectors. These range from the economic efficiency of capitalism to the growing concerns of environmental changes. We also explore governmental systems that have left vulnerable communities at risk for decades. Our publication urges designers to use our power to leave those communities better than how we found them

04: fundraising & events

For our 3rd annual issue, we decided to GO BIG and try out a perfect bound spine (64 pages+cover minimum!) for the first time. However, the printing costs came out to be TWICE as much as last year’s costs, totaling to $2,752. Not many student orgs have 2k on hand, and InPrint wasn’t any exception. To make our perfect bound magazine a reality we not only had to hustle on content but also grind HARD to get enough funding. Some of the things we did this year were…


profits: $1285 ✨

release party

To celebrate our 3rd annual issue, we hosted our first release party (yay!) where we had a photobooth, raffle, mocktail bar, professional catering, and fun mini games (“clear” pong, a guessing jar, & blackjack). Guests could also visit our InPrint table to purchase Issue 03: IMPACT along with some of the merch featured on our kickstarter.

Because our release party was such a hit,
