New Work: em Magazine, reposted from

posted by Student Editors

In the spirit of our New Work series over on the main Grids blog, and in anticipation of all the great work you're going to be submitting to our Student Design Competition, we're showcasing some great recent student publication design in our New Work: Student Publications series. If you want to submit YOUR school pub, look for details at the end of this post.

It's Fashion Week here in NYC and in the spirit of that, today we'd like to introduce you to em Magazine, a fashion magazine produced entirely by students at Emerson College in Boston. Editor-in-Chief Jamie Emmerman shares some of his favorite pages with us...

em Magainze, Emerson College's award-winning culture and fashion publication, was founded in 2007 and is Emerson's premier biannual print publication. We are entirely student run and exclusively showcase Emerson student work and talent. 

For this issue, we chose to capitalize on our exceptional artists. We expanded our photography features section, commissioned illustrators to incorporate a new artistic medium, and physically increased the page size to 10" x 13" to allow for the best possible viewing experience.
