WOO is Emily Carr University’s student publication; it showcases student work from all disciplines, including art, design, creative writing, media, illustration, animation and more. Woo is a fantastic project because it allows students to experiment and learn how to work with a team of fellow students to compose a publication from scratch. During my time at Woo, I was Editor-in-chief and Lead designer. I was accountable for administrative duties, managing schedules, budgets, pre-press file production and overseeing submissions, and I worked alongside the Art Director to create strong and unique concepts, visuals and layouts.
For the 2015 school year, we found inspiration in the seasons. The fall issue used a bright red and showcased the outline of the map of Granville Island (where the school was located). The Winter issue had a very cool and vibrant blue-green with a beautiful marble pattern. And for the Spring issue, we had a lovely warm yellow accompanied by a delicate flower pattern.
