The cover features a kaleidoscopic treatment of a student artist at work.
My main focus of improvement was to create spreads that acted more like spreads rather than individual pages next to each other. This first page has information on the Continuing Education program on one side and the table of contents on the other — I brought them together through a strong grid with similar line-art structures as those featured on the cover.
The hierarchy of the existing course listings is successful, so only the specific typefaces used changed in that aspect of the the design. The classroom image is separated on opposite ends of the spread to situate the courses into the classrooms.
For the Spotlight feature, I created an inset that could stand on its own outside the page, but yet it is still maintaining the grid of the containing spread.

While studying at PNCA, I created this sample redesign that highlights a clean, energetic approach to publication design.
