Well, I finally got Sam in a magazine… and a cover no less. Too bad it’s a fake.
A couple of months ago I was contacted by a fourth year design student at York University in Toronto, Steph MacDonald. One of her projects was a mockup of a small magazine, and being a surfer herself, decided to go the freshwater route. She found some of my images on Flickr, presented her case, and let me know which images she was interested in. I was more than happy to help her out.
Anyway, as it is now the end of the semester, it appears that she got everything done. The image above is from the cover of the publication and below you can see one of the inside spreads where additional images of mine were used. Here is the link to a PDF of the entire mockup.
Hopefully, sometime soon some of my surfing images will appear in actual magazine. Word on the street is it should be sometime later this month.
I’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, if anyone out there is looking for a designer, it sounds like Steph is getting ready to graduate. Let me know and I’ll pass on her contact info.
