When I Grow Up

When I was a little kid I had so many ideas of what I wanted to be when I was an adult. I went from wanting to be an actor to teacher to a musician. I never wanted to be anything in the medical field though. That particular field has never interested me. Looking back on all my childhood aspirations everything I wanted to be was based on being creative. I didn’t realize it at the time, but I loved being able to create things. I liked having multiple ways to complete a task. It can be stressful at times, but it’s amazing to me how many solutions there can be for one task. This is why being creative has always been appealing to me. This is a magazine cover I designed for school. I choose to make the magazine about Brandon Woelfel. He is an amazing photographer based out of New York. He is someone that I have been following for awhile now, so I thought it would be fun to make a magazine about him. For this project we designed the nameplate, a cover, table of contents and the feature article. This is particularly special to me because it was one of the first projects that I truly enjoyed and I didn’t get tired of. Working on the magazine was when I first decided that this was something I wanted to do for a career.
