FNewsmagazine is an award-winning journal of arts, culture, and politics edited and designed by students at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC). The print edition is published eight times a year and distributed for free around the city Chicago.
As a designer, I was involved in a wide range of tasks, from designing spreads for print issues, creating graphics for digital distribution on the FNewsmagazine website and social media, and creating illustrations for a total of four printed publications over the span of 7 months.
