For our second issue of the year, we wanted to use the space of our double truck to feature multiple students, rather than just one story. The mini-profiles on the page were all about students in the marching band who also are a part of other football game extracurriculars like Blue Brigade, cheer, athletic trainers or the football team. Since these were students who by virtue of their versatility were stars on our campus, I decided to incorporate the year’s marching show title, “Seeing stars” into the theme of the design. I used a black background with white text and used repeated elements like the cutouts and star imagery to allow for continuity and a cohesive look and feel to the page. This helped connect the separate stories and package them together in a visually appealing way.

Recognitions: Second place – newspaper page/spread, NSPA Clips and Clicks (2022); Third place – feature page/spread design, ILPC (2023)
