Local Food Magazine


You will create a 12-page magazine for the brand Drink & Dish Local. The magazine is designed to be printed. The magazine will consist of a cover, table of contents, 4 articles, and a back cover ad. Each article should be treated as a different design but the magazine should be cohesive and look like a single unit.

This is an exercise in creativity and technical typography. Pay attention to creating nice creative headlines.
