As Production Manager and Vice-President of University of Wisconsin–Stout's student-run news magazine and oldest student organization (1914!) Stoutonia, I directed the visual design, layout, and production of the publication. Published bi-weekly, my team of four layout designers and I worked to complete the paper in time for the presses. As a final good-bye to the paper after graduation, I conceptualized a redesign for their current website.
