I went along to Content today, joining writers, photographers, illustrators and designers to making a magazine. In a day! Here’s what we made ^^
I had a fabulous time. I really enjoyed seeing how the whole thing came together in 10ish hours. That’s no mean feat! Especially when you consider that nobody really knew anyone else there; this was not a day out for Cardiff’s most familiar faces!
For me it was particularly fascinating to watch the illustrators and designers bring the words to life. I was awestruck watching a guy called Max illustrate the piece that @areyoulaura and I put together. BLOWN AWAY! It’s helped filled some of my gaps in understanding around the processes involved in creating a magazine. I feel I’ve taken a lot of useful knowledge from today.
The event was part of Cardiff Design Festival, and was organised by Plastik Magazine and Cardiff School of Journalism. I’d like to encourage a repeat performance next year #cardiffmakeamag, but you, yes, *you* should come too xxx
