Lawrenceville Out Loud

Satirical magazine

In 2016, I created Lawrenceville Out Loud with Jonathan Ge while a junior at the Lawrenceville School. We wanted to introduce a satirical publication that would examine not merely Lawrenceville, but also investigate the United States and the world abroad.

We published new articles online every two weeks, establishing a consistent writing team that centered around six primary student content producers.

This was the first website I had ever created, and such an undertaking required four months of self-initiated study of HTML, CSS, and Javascript to begin my web development path.

In the fall of 2017, a special print issue was produced, which can be viewed here.

It can be viewed at lvilleoutloud.org

Fall 2017 magazine cover

I chose a vibrant and flat aesthetic for the cover of the magazine, which catches the eye as it sees the magazine lying around campus.

In addition to our typical commentary, we included a collection of advertisements based upon real student organizations or fictional products. These were all produced in Photoshop and InDesign.

Faux medical advertisement

Various advertisments were created to better depict Lawrenceville Out Loud as a "real" magazine. Subtle references to Lawrenceville and overt uses of humor add a distinct charm.
