I was brought in to do print layout and ad design for the December 2008 issue of L.A. Health News.  I ended up doing the cover layout as well.  While magazine layout is pretty formulaic, it is not quite as simple as just dropping in text and images into a template.  Modern ‘type setting’ can be trickier than expected; and understanding which photos will print correctly is no simple task.  I greatly enjoyed filling in for the staff layout artist on this project.
