Role: Graphic Designer  
 Target Audience: Chicago Wolves Fans 
  Skills: Publication & Logo Design

What was the project?: I was required to create/design a magazine based on my individual pursuit or interest that thematically translates (interprets, makes a connection of meaning with) our targeted audience.
What was the purpose of this project?: The purpose of this project is to get me in the habit of making a design that would look clean and professional to the viewer that is going to read it. Also, get me into utilizing the grid on the page to lay out the information.
Masthead Logo Concept Designs
Before I started designing the spreads for my magazine I design a wide variety of masthead logo concepts. Each of these concepts has some fencing elements in it, like having them having a slash mark going through the word mark and having the lines making up the letters of the word.
Chosen Masthead Design
So out of all the design concepts I ultimately went with, I chose this one mainly because it shows the logo being sliced through and when you get to the end you can see it connect with its target with the hit effect that is above the E.
Magazine Cover
Moving on to the magazine cover, I went with an intense photo of a fencing look at the viewer to show them how fencing as a sport is taken really seriously and also highlight the important articles that the viewer should read.
6 Column Grid Utilization
Before we go to the actual spreads, I wanted to show that I am utilizing a 6 column grid for this magazine and show how am I laying out the text.
Magazine Spreads
For the magazine spreads, it goes over many topics that are related to fencing, like interviews, fencing materials, work out routines, and many more. This will give the reader more insight on what fencing is about as a whole. Also at the end, this magazine is accompanied by a credits page and a colophon.
