My freshman and sophomore year of college afforded me lots of spare time with my friends. I found myself throwing lots of layout ideas around and had no real outlet for them. On staff at the ampersand, I didn’t have many assignments and had yet to grasp my role as a layout designer.
I started making mock layouts for fun. I made a zine called “Mo Fo” and I put together looks for it. My friend Drew had a writing assignment for a media class and I took advantage of the situation. I immediately got to work on putting the layout together.
