The Anthropolgie Magazine is one of the most looked forward to projects in my design program at school. The entire class got together and got some beautiful paper from frenchpaperco.com so we could print our magazines and make them look authentic.
The day I shot my pictures was gloomy, lacking in bright colors and warmth. I was not to happy about this but what can you do. The primary model in the magazine, Mariah (moosmusing.blogspot.com), is a friend of mine who claimed to have no modeling experience. She got in front of the camera and just shined. Nothing in my magazine would have come through without her help.
The layout of the magazine was fairly simple to execute. The layout was intended to mimic Anthropolgie closely.
The most difficult part of this entire process was printing. (Something that frustrated my classmates just as much) First I cut down the paper too short, the printer wouldn’t accept the thickness, the images came too close to the edge when trimming the paper and the paper crinkled when folded. All of this came to an ironic close when I was informed that the big fancy printer at work could complete all of these things for me. So I now have two copies of my magazine. One filled with my blood, sweat and tears and the other folded and stapled to perfection.
