Northridge Magazine Covers

Concept Exploration? We’ve Got It Covered!

When CSUN’s University Advancement division needed to explore cover designs for the Northridge Magazine International Issue, VISCOM wowed them with a world of options. Led by project leader Michael Cruz and designer Lindsey Reveche, the team explored a wide range of illustrated and photographic styles to convey an international feel for a magazine whose readership is as diverse as CSUN’s own student population — a point emphasized by an infographic panel within the magazine, which was also designed by VISCOM. Shown here are just a few samples from the extensive cover exploration comprised of more than a dozen design options.

JAMES

James Phuong

Designer

Standing idly by as an observer for a majority of the time during his college years, James found it a challenge to adapt to the fast-paced working environment of all VISCOM has to offer. Switching off from majoring in architecture to that of Graphic design made the experience somewhat more difficult. However, along the process, he made the discovery that he works at his best when given a tight deadline in a stressful environment. That was when he realized that five years without a car worked to his advantage rather than a disadvantage.

Jessica Strelioff

Designer

I started working at Viscom in 2011 after transitioning from an illustration major to graphic design. I had taken only a handful of graphic design classes and was eager to learn more. I had heard great things about the opportunities at Viscom and couldn’t say “no” to being a part of it. It was one of the best decisions I made. Not only was I surrounded by amazingly talented people, I also started leading projects which required serious work and gave me the opportunity to interact with clients and other designers. For the next year, I immersed myself into graphic design and Viscom and soaked up everything I could. I came out a very different designer and person.
