As well as write my dissertation, I was required to design it as a project in itself. I studied the world of independent magazines, and indie publishing. I investigated the importance of print in design, and the success of using independent magazines as a platform for emerging designers.
To complement this, I designed my dissertation as a magazine. I used InDesign to create each page lay out individually. The magazine is printed on recycled paper, to give a sense of care and quality to it. It is A5, to be portable, and fit onto a bookshelf, and is perfect bound, like many independent magazines currently on the market.
