The idea for the magazine was that it would be marketed toward the creative class in the Sacramento region. We worked in groups of four to make overall decisions about the concept and direction we would each take. We each wrote an article to be included and contributed a bank of photos that would go with it. We were then tasked with individually designing our own magazine, using the agreed upon title, direction, the four articles and the accompanying photos.
As a group we decided our articles would focus around events that took place in downtown Sacramento. Our goal was to reach out to the creative community and make them a part of the evolving community that is 'In Vision'. I got really lucky with my group and ended up with great photography for each article. I was inspired by my peers creativity and used the bright/bold color I found in the bank of images to create a system for my layouts. Each section/article is introduced with a title page/double layout that either features an illustration or a beautiful photo.
