A Sight We Love

We have a wall outside the art director’s office where we paste miniatures of the magazine pages as we finish them. It helps us see how one feature story flows into (or possibly clashes with) the next, and how certain ads look next to certain editorial pages.

But best of all is the great sense of satisfaction that it imparts to us when the storyboard, as it’s called, is completely filled, signaling that we are FINISHED WITH THE MAGAZINE. We wrapped up the May-June issue earlier this week, so that storyboard is nice and complete, as you can see. You can click on the image to see it a little larger—but not too much larger, as we wouldn’t want to give away too much of the magazine before it gets to your mailbox. (And just a reminder that if you’re not getting The Penn Stater, perhaps you should remedy that problem by joining the Alumni Association.)

I’m heading down to our printer on Monday to see the magazine on press. I hope to shoot some pictures and maybe even a little video—the whole process is pretty interesting, with the giant vats of ink and the huge rolls of paper and all—and I might try to post something from the visit next week.
