Magazine: Seattle Culture

For my second magazine, the project required a cohesive design across all sections of the magazine; cover page, TOC, department page, feature spread, and jump spread. The assignment also required a department page and jump spread written with our own original content.

Feature Spread

During my commute between Edmonds and Seattle, WA to get to school and back, I have seen an enormous number of homeless locals in downtown Seattle. I was inspired for this project to look into the issue of the rising homelessness and found that the city's 10-year plan to reduce homelessness that started in 2005 has been increasingly unsuccessful and is now in year 11.
