REAL Magazine / Editorial brief

10 January 2012

Editorial Design may be an endangered species (see Magculture's Jeremy Leslie's recent comments in Design Week), but it's still one of the most glamorous sorts of briefs to work on.

Our annual editorial project was set back in November, where the HND2 students commissioned HND Photography Students to supply them with images based on a theme.

This year we went for 'REAL' and each student was given a subject area such as arts, technology, environment, travel, etc. The deliverables consisted of a cover, masthead, three double-page spreads and the archived image source. Here are some sample spreads -
