March 2006 - May 2007 City At Night Magazine (Monthly Entertainment Publication)
Creator • Managing Editor • Art Director • Promotions Manager
Creator of City At Night Magazine I conceptualized the literary content, the look feel and direction of the publication.
Managing Editor (General Manager): I searched for and negotiated for the most cost effective printing for City At Night Magazine. This printing concerned both the printing of the magazine, media materials and swag. I chaired meetings every Tuesday with the writers and approved or denied their story ideas, and tracked their progress. I acted as the buffer between the writers, sales and the publisher. I set up and often did the distribution of the publication.
As Art Director: I coordinated and directed all photo shoots concerning both the covers and major stories. I approved any and all photos used for story content. I also set up the overall feel of the Myspace page and oversaw work done by Graphics/Promotions Departments. Finally I delivered final layout to the printer and stayed around to preform the press checks.
Promotions Manager: Oversaw all events promoted by and covered by City At Night Magazine. This included web-isodes shot on location at clubs. The weekend one-on-one distribution of magazines, fliers, posters and swag to our target demographic. Set up & coordination of City At Night Magazine release parties.
