What a great journey creating this magazine has been. Every semester Baylor’s journalism department publishes the Focus Magazine, a student publication run by two journalism students. Spring 2016 semester Elizabeth Starr and myself created this issue, State of the Art. This issue highlights the beautiful art scene surrounding Waco, TX featuring Clint and Kelly Harp of Harp Design Co (from the popular HGTV show, Fixer Upper) and more. Elizabeth kindly took on the role of copy-editor while I took on the task on designing the entire 32-page spread. Check out the step-by-step process of designing the magazine here. I hope this can give any potential designers some insight into the process of creating a publication.
