Making Magazines - MECO6914

Year - 2018

Making Magazines explores practical and theoretical aspects of contemporary magazine culture. Students work in small groups to conceive, plan, write and design a small 'dummy' (prototype) magazine using InDesign software. The unit emphasises writing, editing and design rather than marketing, although students will learn the importance of producing a magazine for the commercial media landscape.
