Rule of Thumb Prints

Rule of Thumb Prints

The purpose of this assignment was to test and expand our skills using print and web media to express a specified topic. One subject that currently has a massive following is in the forensic science field. Furthering the research on this topic, a quarterly magazine was created for the target audience of followers and fans of crime shows and criminal proceedings. With the magazine was the following three covers for the rest of the year, a phone application, and the publisher’s website. To achieve the look and feel of a serious subject, Surface Magazine was created with a muted color palette, straightforward typographic look, and a very clear photo/graphic style. With printed media being the main source of collateral, it was important to use that to my advantage with transparent covers, short sheets, or torn paper for readers to experience their magazines.
