This year the topic was my father’s life in the 1940s and 1950s.

As usual, it was quite the production, but the hardest part was pulling the story together from scattered information and secondly, managing so many photos per page. However, the Supervisor was quite pleased.
The final project for Publication Design was to put together a 28 page magazine covering a single social issue. Having just been diagnosed with a wheat allergy and knee deep in research as I was first learning how to change my lifestyle, I chose it as my topic.
This was an activity in detail management! InDesign can be cloogy, but by the time I was finished with this project, I was beginning to grasp it’s idiosyncrasies and to work around them.

Special mention goes to my beloved friend and the founder of the Greater Philadelphia Celiac Sprue Support Group, Phyllis Brodgen, who fought for years to bring the issues of wheat allergies to a higher visibility on a national level.
NOTE: This project was taken to my second interview with Rotonics. It played a part in my getting hired for next quarter’s internship. Thank you once again to Beth Remsburg for a portfolio worthy project.
NOTE2: I was pleasantly startled to find this magazine was hung on the wall for the following quarter!
