Art Direct and design Artefact magazine, a publication written by final year BA (hons) Journalism students at London College of Communication.
Having initially worked on the design of the first issue of Artefact magazine — brought in to work with Scott King — I took sole charge over the design of all subsequent issues.
On taking charge of the design I had to make some changes to better address the needs and requirements of the students. While still ensuring the quality of the magazine remained as high as possible. This included commissioning student illustrators and photographers wherever possible, and having meetings with the journalists to better understand the articles they are working on.
Artefact now runs to over 20 issues, and a sister publication (A+) was launched on the success of the project, and includes contributions from across the whole college.
Both Artefact and A+ have been shortlisted for the Stack Independent Magazine Awards on numerous occasions.
