During the Spring 2019 semester, I worked to redesign the entire magazine. Notably, I integrated both a 12-column and baseline grid to unify and organize the publication while allowing for more flexibility, more modern typography to increase legibility and visual interest, an updated color palette, and more whitespace to allow the articles and illustrations to breathe. To present the new format, I redesigned one issue cover-to-cover: some comparisons are shown below.

Feature Spreads

Feature article on the D.C. Divas, a women's football team based in the Washington D.C. area.

Feature article about the first revocation of an honorary degree at Georgetown University. Georgetown revoked the honorary doctorate of Theodore McCarrick, a former Catholic cardinal accused of sexual assault, but did so only after he was defrocked. The delayed decision and negligence regarding honorary degrees still held by others accused of assault brought more frustration than satisfaction among the student body.
