Detroit Connections Magazine

This print and digital magazine is meant to serve as a resource for elementary school teachers to incorporate creativity and movement in the classroom. For this project I created a flexible grid-based system with a clear typographic hierarchy and colored sections to weave together a variety of stories, photos, illustrations, and lesson plans.
Detroit Connections is a series of courses offered through the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design at the University of Michigan that take students, staff, and faculty from the Ann Arbor campus every week into two partner schools in Detroit to lead weekly art workshops and design collaborative projects with youth. This first edition highlights student work from the Winter 2014 semester with 4th and 5th graders at Bennett Elementary in Southwest Detroit.
