WINOL: Absolute:ly Magazine Weeks 1 & 2

Week 1

As part of the Absolute:ly team I must come up with various stories including pictures and solid ideas for the upcoming weeks and pitch them during a Monday Feature’s meeting.

During this week I gathered photos for a feature to be published on October 2nd on Fur and Leather. I collected research and took photos of various clothing in River Island, Primark and New Look and wrote the first draft for my piece.

Week 2

Monday 30th September – Sophie Webb, our Fashion editor, gave us a full debrief on our roles and showed us how to use the editing software, Fireworks CS6. After discussing our stories with her and getting useful tips we then went into a feature’s meeting to share our upcoming stories with the group.

Tuesday 1st October – After many hours of editing I had finished my image and article to be published on the Absolute:ly Magazine site.

Here is a link to my story!

Fur and Leather: Fashion or Faux Pas?

Wednesday 2nd October – My article was published and I am awaiting feedback tomorrow in our next meeting.

Improvements for next time:

  • Bigger images
  • Clearer text
  • More colour in image

I really enjoyed creating my first article for Absolute:ly and I hope to have many more coming soon!
