The annual Developments magazine for the University of Arizona College of Social and Behavioral Sciences highlights the new and extraordinary events and changes in the college. With a focus on donors, alumni and community members as the audience, the marketing team writes, edits, designs and prints the magazine with spotlights on faculty and student research.

For the 44-page 2018 issue of Developments, I was the only designer on the project. My work included working with copy writers, editors and printers on the text and stories; formatting each article with titles, bylines, photographs and text; and designing a fresh, new style for the magazine. I created and maintained a uniform format and style throughout, combatting inconsistencies in previous Developments issues.

The top stories in the 2018 Developments were Noam Chomsky joining the faculty at the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, the improvement and importance of the college’s Prison Writing Program and the acquisition of the Castro House, a safe learning environment in the border town of Nogales, Ariz.
