Divide magazine

We were given the brief to create a magazine on lifestyle in teams of 6. This involved creating a whole magazine and getting it printed professionally. I had the pleasure of teaming up with AmberEmmaSunjayTasha and Tom.
Our magazine is called Divide and plays on split opinions, it is focused around different aspects of culture and looks into social culture, environment, fashion, technology, politics and music.


‘Divide Magazine is a 21st century culture magazine that appeals to a wider audience. The ‘Divide’ manifesto is based on a contrast of who you want to be and what you conform to. It’s the difference between going out and getting what you want and settling for what you’re given.’
The magazine features a limited edition screen print inside to go with our manifesto.
We were each given our own sections to work on, but all pulled together for the austerity measures  photo shoot as well as the contents page, manifesto and credits pages. We also all produced our own individual covers.
My section was female fashion, here I focused on spring and summer fashion as well as DIY designs to link in with the magazine theme. I wanted the set to be quite photographic as it helped to break up some of the more text heavy sections of the magazine.

Austerity measures…Stand there and take it

As part of our magazine project, it was required to do a photo shoot based around the theme of austerity measures. When taking into consideration the theme of our magazine we thought that the best approach to take would be ‘stand there and take it’ stripping everyones opinions away. This led us to the idea of powder paint and the ability of not being able to fully control the mark it makes on you.

We managed to get permission to use a local Lincoln park called Liquorice park thanks to the lovely owner. Even though the weather was freezing cold and raining we were determined to get the photos we wanted and here are some of the results…

Glass half full…

Now that it’s finally the christmas holidays, I decided it was time to catch up on some much needed blogging of my 3rd year work!

This piece is a side element from one of my favourite briefs that I got this year. We were given the task of creating a magazine in groups of 6 which will be explained in another post. The magazine is called divide and focuses on individual opinions and choosing who you want to be.

We each created our own limited edition screen print which the reader would receive in the magazine. It uses the well known phrase of glass half full and glass half empty. The buyer would be able to pick which view they believed in, keeping in the theme of our manifesto.
