The Garden Guru Magazine - Autumn 2012 edition

I assisted the Senior Graphic Designer in the layout design of the autumn edition of The Garden Guru Magazine (formerly The Guru magazine), a gardening and lifestyle magazine available nationally in newsagents and garden centres. This edition of the magazine underwent quite a dramatic re-vamp led by the Senior Graphic Designer. This re-design took the magazine from what was a traditional and classic gardening magazine, to more of a contemporary, fun and interesting layout, and encapsulated everything from the masthead to the layout and grid of pages. This allowed for more creativity when designing spreads and allowed the magazine to stand out in the market-place.
As with The Guru, I was able to work on the layout of articles throughout the magazine under the guidance of the Senior Graphic Designer. My part in the production process included image and text editing, and the layout of spreads allocated to me. I was also included in the copy-writing process for this edition.

The Guru - Summer 2011 edition

I assisted the Senior Graphic Designer in the layout design of the summer edition of The Guru magazine, a gardening and lifestyle magazine available via subscription. In this edition of the magazine and under the guidance of the Senior Graphic Designer, I was able to work on the cover design, including image selection and colour choice. I also worked on spreads within the magazine, laying out the images and text to suit the  style of the rest of the magazine, as decided by the Senior Graphic Designer.
