2008's Third Place Winner
DESIGNER Lauren Turnier
SCHOOL Fashion Institute of Technology
MAJOR Advertising Design
INSTRUCTOR Ronald Bacsa
INTERNSHIP WON Real Simple
What was the biggest challenge in creating your entry?
I had no idea where to begin! I do not have any experience in editorial design nor have I ever had an assignment like this before. I always have had a huge interest in the publication industry and just designed from what I knew. I tried to design something a little different, something I would like to see. The deadline also served as a challenge. I only found out about the competition a week before it was due!
What was your inspiration in creating your entry?
I was mainly inspired by the copy and description of the magazine given. Once I read the copy, I was flooded with ideas and got going with conceptualizing and sketching. I also flipped through some magazines for some inspiration.
Do you participate in any publication- or design-related campus activities?
There are some offered at FIT such as yearbook, and ICON magazine, but I do not participate in them.
What are your favorite magazines?
This is tough but I’m going to go with Nylon, Real Simple, Gourmet and Good.
What do you want to do while in New York for your internship?
Well, I am from New York so I tend to take for granted all that the city has to offer. There are a lot of concerts and movie screenings in the parks during the summer that I would like to check out. Also, there are many museums and galleries I’ve been meaning to get to.
