Getting a final outcome back from print is one of the most exciting parts of a project and I’m so happy with my printed magazine!
Ladies and gentleman, the end of university is now in sight! The outcomes for this brief are definitely helping to make it feel real and ready for the ‘real’ world, and I must say I’m pretty excited.
