Voyage is a travel magazine entirely created by UW undergraduate students. Voyage was founded in 2016, with 5 issues published in the past 2 years.
In 2017, I joined the team as a layout designer. Since then, I have co-designed Voyage's latest 2 issues with another layout designer.

ISSUE 4: THE PERSPECTIVE ISSUE
Size: 8.5" x 11"
This issue strives to highlight individuals whose stories have been historically neglected. We hope this issue of Voyage offers new perspectives on travel and captures the importance of representation
ISSUE 5: THE FOOD ISSUE
Size: 8.5" x 11"
This issue celebrates the universal and love language of food and the lessons learned while eating our way around the globe.
How do we make the magazine?
01 WRITERS CREATE STORIES
The writers, either from the team or from the UW community, will work with the copy editors to create articles for the issue.
02 ARTISTS CREATE VISUAL CONTENT
Meanwhile, photographers and artists on the team will work closely with the writers to create visual contents.
03 SKETCHES FOR LAYOUT
I am usually responsible for designing the layout for half of the articles. After receiving the first rough draft of the writing content, I will make sketches for the layouts.

04 LAYOUT VARIATIONS
I will then create variations of the layouts on Indesign and show them to the team for feedback.
05 FINAL EDIT
Designers and copy editors will work together to make final edits. After finalizing all content, I will polish the fine details of the layout such as rags, alignment, and line spacing.

We will send out the final copy of the magazine to a professional print shop to print.

Release Party: Building the Community
My favorite thing about Voyage is that we not only spread the spirit of travel through our magazine but also bring a community that is passionate about travel, nature and culture together with our events.
