I have been working for the UW-Stout Honors College since February 2015 and have had the opportunity to make many projects for them. The most foreboding is our annual alumni magazine "The Honorary".
The 2017 - 2018 issue was my second issue being a part of the team, but my first time being the lead designer. I had other students help me take photographs and write articles, but I designed it from cover to cover. Much improvement was made from the previous year. I learned that photos can break the barrier of the page, we can incorporate bleed, and I also learned how to properly size and format paragraphs. These skills were exercised in this issue throughout and I only learned from this experience. The following issue of the Honorary pushes these boundaries even further. It is amazing to have an outlet where I can freely design, and have a published article in my hand at the end of it.
