Artefact magazine


Artefact magazine is written by final year Journalism students, at London College of Communication (LCC).

I was initially brought in to work with Scott King (i-D, Sleazenation...) on Issue 1, but since then have taken sole responsibility for the design and art direction of each subsequent issue.

This has included overseeing a complete redesign to ensure that it continued to fully serve the needs of the student journalists behind it, and showcase their work.

Wherever possible I try to commission student Illustrators and photographers, from the College.

The success of Artefact has led to a sister publication A+, which has become an international collaboration with Institutions from Spain, Canada, and Egypt.

Artefact and A+ have been shortlisted for numerous categories at the Stack Magazine Awards.
