North By Northwestern (NBN) is a student-run magazine and site that focuses on all things related to campus life and culture. NBN puts out three issues of the print magazine a year.
I was a designer from March-June 2020, Art Director from September-December 2020, and Assistant Creative Director from January-June 2021. NBN was the first space where I could truly be experimental with editorial design and my illustration style.
Spring 2021 magazine
I designed two feature stories and one shorter story for this issue. As Assistant Creative Director, I worked with our Creative Director to establish a style guide for the magazine. I love adding illustrative elements to highlight more abstract concepts in articles.
