Summer design internship
June 2019-September 2019
Bethesda Magazine is a print publication for residents of the metropolitan D.C. area. With an audience of 67,000+ readers per issue, the magazine covers topics ranging from restaurants, real estate, home decor, community issues, arts, and people.
As a design intern, I was assigned a few stories per issue to create print layouts for. I used Adobe InDesign and Photoshop for my designs, and also corresponded with photographers and local venues to gather photographs to place.
Smart homes feature:
This feature focused on the impact of smart technology in modern homes. To pair with the sleek photos, I wanted to experiment with a minimalist design in this layout.
Vintage shopping feature:
Since the piece focused on antique shopping, I made sure to incorporate a more retro color palette and shape combination. Inspired by all the detailed photos that were sent to us as well as designs I saw on Pinterest, I decided to create a photo collage to pair with the statement title.
I also designed single-page layouts for lifestyle/event sections.
