In this project, students formed groups to two, one person as the layout designer and the other as the illustrator, to produce 3 magazine spreads together. My partner, Jonathan Pinto (Jonathanpinto.net), executed the layout design, while I was responsible for the illustrations.

We both thought that collage will be an appropriate illustration style for this matter, because of it can be used to convey a sense of raw, in-your-face impact like the dramatic aspect of 24-hour news that the article mention. 
As the article began to propose a more thoughtful, calming, and reasonable way of consuming news via "slow news," Jonathan designed the layout to incorporate that subject shift by opening up more negative space. I also designed collages that accordingly expressed the calm and meditative quality of slow news.
