The link below will lead you to one of my university projects – The Contrarian Magazine. As the old saying goes; do not judge a book by its cover, rather approach it with an open mind and with the understanding that my group and I were trying to do something a little bit different!
Trying to come up with ideas that would not be offensive but were perceived to be contrarian was quite tricky. I think as it turned out I remained quite liberal.
I was in charge of the design and layout side, and as far as a first foray into InDesign goes, I thought I did okay!
As far as content goes, each member of the group wrote two shorts, a review/profile and a feature. The pieces I wrote can be found on this website but a pdf of the magazine in full can be found by following the link below…
