Echo Magazine 2020

Students in the Graphic Design and Journalism programs at Columbia College Chicago collaborate to create from inception to completion a four-color magazine in a single semester.

Students design the publication, write and edit all stories, create or assign all photos and illustrations, design the pages, copy edit, fact check and proofread all pages; and send the magazine out to the printer.

A professionally printed magazine with a print run of 12,000 that is distributed throughout Chicago.
