Join Norel Hassan and Thea Lorentzen, lead designers at the New York Times, as they share strategies for using simple typographic materials to design your own magazine. Explore color, texture, scale, and composition to showcase different tones and characters to convey a sense of personality within your design.

This is an exposure-level workshop suitable for teens and college students; no prior experience in design is needed to participate.
