It is an understatement to say that this year’s Graphic Design and Communications graduating class has been busy. This entire semester second-year students worked diligently on bringing the second issue of PROOF magazine to life. With some direction from faculty, they accomplished this project by working on separate committees, individually and collectively. Like last year’s issue, students each have their own two-page spread where they share a collection of their best design and photography as well as a written narrative that helps the reader learn more about them. The students decided that this issue’s design would be thematically centered around a noir detective motif which helped set the visual tone. It was a lot of work, but the end result is an impressive creative and technical accomplishment. Because PROOF brings together nearly everything students have learned about designing for print into a single project it has become a very valuable educational tool. The second issue of PROOF magazine is available now.
