I worked as Art Editor on this 130-page monthly newsstand title – aimed at PC building enthusiasts and die-hard gamers – for 14 years, producing every issue single-handedly. I undertook all aspects of the magazine’s design, including art direction, page layout, directing photo shoots, commissioning illustrations and sourcing library images. Although Custom PC was published monthly all of the design work was done within a two week period, which is all the time the budget would allow.
Although published by Dennis Publishing the magazine was produced by myself and other freelancers, all working from our respective homes using DropBox to coordinate and produce the magazine. In January of 2014 I redesigned the entire magazine in just two weeks (all the time the schedule and limited budget would allow) including creating a comprehensive set of InDesign templates.
