For my main feature i have decided to interview three creatives. One who has graduated and two who are in their last year. These interviews are to find out how university was for each of them and what they think the future holds. Here are my questions and their answers.
A video interview was taken with Daniel.
Here is the final outcome for this magazine. I am pretty happy with it, but would have liked it to have felt and looked a bit cleaner. But it is something that I am going to have to work on in future.

The Brief for this project was self made.
The brief for this project is to design and create a new magazine for young creatives. People who are about to start or finish university. The magazine should have features on present and past students, artist reviews and gallery reviews. As well as this, adverts should be created which are suitable to the genre of the magazine. The magazine should be A5 in size.
To fill gaps between the features i have decided to create my own advertisements. They are all linked with the theme of designer or being a student. This allows the readers, being designers or students to relate to them and maybe purchase them. Here are the ones I have created.
Another feature in the magazine was to be of an artist whose work is currently on show at a local gallery. For this issue I have used Damien Hirst, who is currently exhibiting at the Tate Modern. I have decided to keep the layout similar to how the interviews were laid out to keep the magazine smooth. A front page was created for this feature to break up the pages.

After making the title page for this feature I decided to create one for the interviews.
Designer heaven is a one off feature which could be a theme of the magazine. Each month a new feature. This feature shows the young creatives what every designer should have in their studio workspace. I wanted to create it as a blueprint with points coming off of the picture to titles. The blueprint here on my pages would be created from a picture and then drawn outlines in illustrator. Here is my spread of Designer Heaven.

Each magazine will have a feature on an artist. This will introduce the readers to new artists that they haven’t yet discovered. It is an eye opener into the world of new artists. Here is my feature on Lee Jeffries.
