TEXTURA is an ongoing international storytelling project initiated by Bethel University journalism and graphic design majors with support from Off-Campus Programs.
In January 2017, I studied abroad in Antigua, Guatemala with 15 Bethel journalism and design students and 5 local Guatemalan students to create a magazine that authentically tells stories of the layers and textures of Guatemalan culture. I had the privilege of naming the project, art directing the final product, as well as designing the logo and magazine cover.
TEXTURA has won 3 awards to date –
• Best of Show Feature Magazine from the Associated Collegiate Press
• Magazine (Complete Unit) from the University & College Designers Association
• Student Collaboration from the University & College Designers Association
