A Magazine, All About *You*

On January 11, 2009, in assignment, PRCA 3339, by Barbara Nixon

Day 240: You! by bookgrl.For my PRCA 3339 Class:

Here’s a fun assignment that you will present in class on Wednesday, January 14. 

Using your choice of software or online service (such as Big Huge Labs at http://bighugelabs.com/flickr/magazine.php), create a magazine cover that depicts you (personality, background, aspirations) to help your class learn more about you.

  • The cover photo must be of you, taken at any point in your life. 
  • Include at least your first name somewhere in the design.
  • Feel free to emulate an existing magazine cover’s look and feel.
  • Save the magazine cover as a JPG, PDF or some other format that can be shown in class.
  • Be prepared to show your magazine cover and discuss it briefly in class (on January 14).
  • This assignment will “count” as part of your participation grade in this class.
