Since 2008, we have been designing Union College magazine. The tri-annual publication is like that of other alumni magazines in that its main objective is to keep alumni engaged with the institution and promote a sense of stewardship for the college by highlighting the accomplishments and activities of the students, faculty, and alumni.
The page designs utilize templates for each of the different departments (campus news, faculty focus, alumni. events, profiles, class notes, and others), while the features are each designed to illustrate the theme or concept of the story. Incremental design changes have been implemented at several junctures over the course of my tenure working on the publication, to adapt to the changing requirements of the content and keep current with new design opportunities.
Several issues of this publication have been recognized with the following: Bronze and Merit awards for External Publications from Higher Education Marketing Report, multiple American Graphic Design Awards from Graphic Design:USA magazine, and Gold from CASE.
