Big Story Magazine


Case Study

The Big Story Magazine


UC Berkeley School of Journalism


Visiting Professor John Battelle, founder of The Industry Standard magazine, teaches a course at the Graduate School of Journalism that has the students creating an issue of the media commentary magazine The Big Story.


Working with student editors, publish a full-color, 64-page magazine for newsstand sale that balanced our ideas and themes with those of the students.


We changed the original trim size to save on costs and made design updates to make the magazine more contemporary in look and feel.


The magazine was published in time for graduation to great response from students and faculty.
