AND magazine ("&") was a student-produced journal co-founded with Mary O'Malley. In 2009, we began producing a serial publication to capture the culture of making in and around the school. Each issue was comprised of a two-sided, single-page document that was folded into a small book format. Readers can trim the edges off the folded document to read it as a pamphlet or simply unfold it to read it as a poster. The graphic design of the book was aimed at accommodating both simultaneously.
Dimensions is the annual, student-produced journal of architecture at the University of Michigan. [Mark Stanley was on the design and editorial team for Dimensions 22.] It was designed over the course of an academic year by a group of six students. Students produce the entire journal, including: soliciting work, choosing contributors, organizing content, designing layouts, content editing, copy editing, and completing the proofing and printing process with the press. D22 was printed and bound in Michigan with a run of 1500 copies. The book is organized as a collection of common words and themes culled out of the writing from the various contributors using word counting software tools. The text is then 'strung through' the book as a single line (as well as a series of distinct essays attached to each project). This text appears on the cover as well and is printed with thermally-raised, transparent ink.
