For this project, we were divided into teams of three and had a week to create a 16+ spread editorial. We were first asked to come up with two categories of seemingly unrelated things that our group mutually liked. Then, under the overarching theme of "The Future," we had to create an editorial combining our chosen categories. My team chose "hip hop" and "nature documentaries." We further whittled that down to "Eminem" and "BBC's Planet Earth series."
To divide and conquer the work, we first sat down together and decided what the narrative would be for our editorial. The common theme we identified between our three disparate categories was survival, or doing whatever means necessary to survive another day. From there, we each came up with some mockup spreads and further iterated by combining what was successful from each.
