The Kent State studio in New York is the ultimate hub for immersion into the world of fashion media. I have the unparalleled education and internship opportunities here to thank for taking my knowledge to the next level. In our Fashion in the Media course, we delve into all aspects of fashion media from Public Relations to Publishing.
As tradition from the students before us, our final assignment of this course is create a magazine, Vignette. Our professor assigned us each a role based off of our prior assignments. I was lucky enough to be chosen to work as the Managing Editor, and I couldn’t be more excited! With our specific roles in mind, our class came together to collaborate on making our own unique version of Vignette to showcase all we’ve learned this semester.
As Managing Editor, I worked with the team of editors to brainstorm content based off of the media kit other members of our class presented. We kept our reader in mind to create content with our target reader’s likes and aspirations in mind. The mix of prior experience and strong organizational skills made me equipped to ensure deadlines were met and content was up to par. I also acted as Copy Editor to make sure the grammar styles stayed consistent throughout and helped in developing the content for the writers’ voices to be heard to the best of their abilities.
There’s not much I love working on more than magazine publishing, so this was the perfect opportunity to enhance my skillset to be ready to take on an editorial internship this summer. Scroll through the digital version below to see what we’ve come up with. Enjoy!
