After spending my junior year as a member of the design team (and later as Senior Design Editor) for NU student publication North by Northwestern, I became creative director in the fall of 2012. As the creative leader for the magazine, I oversaw the design, photography and illustration departments, delegating tasks and making sure all art and design were created and received.
Together with print managing editor Shirley Li, I facilitated the redesign of NBN to contain a more streamlined and modern tone. The issue was extremely successful and has more online views than all other previous editions combined. In May, the Society of Professional Journalists awarded NBN second place in the Region 5 Mark of Excellence Awards for Best Student Magazine.
