My Final Major Project¬†goal was to:¬†“Design a consumer technology/gadget magazine for adults that is all inclusive (gender neutral, age neutral, income neutral etc).”

I believe that technology/gadget magazines have distanced themselves from their subject matter and have become a men’s magazine with scantily-clad women on each cover. I wanted to produce a magazine that tackled this issue, as well as considering how advertising disrupts the reading experience. I also wanted to avoid the following: top 5/10 lists that focus on higher incomes; cluttered pages that are hard to navigate; jargon; biased reviews and cover artwork that is disrupted by titles and strap-lines.
