Designing the year – Newsletters


As we count down to the new year, I recap the year almost gone by. Part 3/3


As the last few hours bring the curtains down on the year, here’s the last in the series of my recap of the year. Like the previous two posts in this series, this one too will focus on my work with the Alumni Association.

Designing for specific events allowed me to satisfy my creative hunger. But it was the newsletters, which really challenged me. We had to deliver an issue every month, and there were many months when we didn’t make it in time. The design had its teething problems, and there were some months when we were struggling for content.

Eventually though, we managed to get the content and design in order. And it took no less than nine months of experimenting with the layout and features.

Of the twelve issues we pulled this year, October was the blockbuster of the year (at least for me). I had the most fun working on this one – I got the chance to play the designer, illustrator, content writer, as well as the editor – and we sent it on time!

So here it is, in all its glory – Issue #10. I hope you like it as much as I do.

With best wishes for a happy and prosperous New Year, thank you for sticking around πŸ™‚ See you in 2014!
