concordia undergraduate journal of art history - vol. xv

publication design

I was part of the design team that designed the fifteenth volume of the Concordia Undergraduate Journal of Art History (CUJAH). CUJAH is a student-run association that aims to showcase the talents of Concordia University’s undergraduate Art History and Fine Arts students by means of an annual journal publication and conference event. CUJAH strives to provide students with academic and professional opportunities through workshops, events, and online resources. The publication is distributed for free on Concordia's campus.
