Equilibrium – University of York Economics Magazine
Founded the magazine in my final year at university. Having gained funding from the department, three undergraduates joined me to help edit the magazine. I designed the issue and have continued to act as graphic designer since leaving (for a fee). It has a print run of 2000 and has featured on the Bright Futures York blog.

I was involved in producing a number of pullouts throughout my time on
the Vision editorial team.
