Cheep Cheap: My First Magazine Concept


Coursework: Magazines in American Society, Drake University

This magazine journalism course was designed as an introduction to magazines from both a practical and a theoretical standpoint. I learned about the many aspects of creating and managing a magazine. I wrote a few articles throughout the course, but by far the final project was the most important learning experience. I had the opportunity to create a magazine prospectus that discussed market and audience analysis, magazine marketing and distribution, design/layout, and content. I also produced a sample copy of the magazine.

Skills applied in this course: research and analysis, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Acrobat Reader, Adobe Photoshop, binding and production.
