I am a part of the Rutgers Honors College Media Team; specifically, I am a member of the Graphic Design and Photography teams. This year, the Media Team is working on creating a brand-new online literary magazine showcasing the artistic side of the lives of Honors College students. I was chosen to design and create the banner for the website that would host the magazine, which we decided to name “Peek.”
This is the design I eventually came up with. I created a graphic of the Honors College building itself, as well as the Honors College mug. Swirls of steam rising up from the mug (inspired by Japanese brushwork) surround the building. I also created two versions of the design – one programmed to appear during the night (top half) and one for the day (bottom half).
This design is a play on several aspects of the Honors College’s reputation: (1) that we are a collection of many diverse disciplines and majors (steam vs. STEAM), and (2) that we are hard workers, found with a coffee mug in hand at any given time of day. The magazine is scheduled to be released soon. I am very excited to be able to share with you this small “peek” into what it will be!
