In addition to a comprehensive final exam in Communication Design, I also had a hands-on exam to be finished in an hour and a half. I was told to create a magazine spread using files given to us in Canvas. With my only other knowledge of magazine spreads coming from cooking magazines, I was a little stumped on how to make a spread that didn’t involve inanimate, edible objects.
Organizing a spread about Mumford & Sons definitely posed a challenge for me. I was given multiple photos and an article to work with, along with some informational graphics. I think for the hour and a half that I worked on it, it came out alright. There are a few things I would change about it, but overall I like it.
See how it turned out here.
