For this editorial assignment, Jose Fresneda & Justin Colt asked students to conceptualize and design a magazine of their choice. “This project is more than just a typographic exercise, as we wanted students to pitch magazine ideas that were a reflection of their own interests, strengths and personalities.”
“Over a four week time period, we saw these magazines evolve from an idea and a few spreads, to a full blown publication. The end results were surprising and exciting from both a design and conceptual standpoint–spanning across ideas such as a millennial art quarterly, a deep dive exploration of fear and phobias, traditional Chinese recipes, an insider look at stay-at-home fashion and aesthetics, and eggs.”
“Dinner Table” magazine is a collection of recipes from my grandpa and essays on Asian family eating as well as Asian culture. Sharing a meal is one of the most important things in my family.
My childhood memory is always the whole family gathering around Grandpa’s dinner table. This magazine is in the loving memory of my grandpa, I hope you enjoy it.
