About this project
I was commissioned by Arts University Bournemouth to develop and produce their new alumni magazine. Through a series of workshops with AUB’s marketing team and their partner design agency Bond & Coyne, I developed the magazine’s editorial direction, produced a list of potential features, planned out the editorial workflow and briefed contributing staff. I worked closely with photographer and AUB alumnus Bill Bradshaw and the designers at Bond & Coyne, who commissioned illustration graduates from the university for the magazine’s artwork. With copy for the magazine coming in from around 15 contributors, I edited every piece to ensure the overall tone and flow of the editorial was coherent while retaining the individual voices throughout. As well as writing the magazine's opening manifesto, I was also incredibly fortunate to contribute one of the magazine’s larger features — an in-depth interview with legendary architect Sir Peter Cook. One Piece of Advice was highly commended at the 2016 Brand Impact Awards in the education category and we are currently working on its third issue.
