Self Promotion Magazine • Dissertation Resolution
For my dissertation I decided to choose the research project which included 3000-5000 words and a final visual outcome. For my topic I decided to explore online platforms and printed materials for a Graphic Designers self promotion. I wanted to research a subject area that I could learn from myself, and being in my last year, I wanted to be totally prepared for when I left university and know exactly how to market myself. I created this magazine for graduate Graphic Design students to help them easily gain knowledge on the most successful methods of self promotion which I
discovered from my research. In terms of the design I wanted something very noticeable which is what self promotion comes down too. With this in mind, I found a series of strange and abstract images that were all very demanding of the users attention to be used a metaphor for self promotion. The magazine includes a look into the most successful printed and digital methods of self-promotion, freelance and agency considerations along with surveys and interviews I gathered during my research.
