It’s been a great experience for all of us and we’ve learnt a lot. For this last issue I was on the Complete team, making all the final checks, proofreading and final design. We also put together the contents and welcome page and the cover was designed by James Gill.
Here’s some of the content I have done for UpStart magazine.
For Issue 1 I was on the ‘craft’ team, which did most of the design and subbing. Here are the pages I designed:
For Issue 2 I was on the create team, writing copy and sourcing images. Here are a couple of the articles I wrote:
Both these pages were designed by Jo Price

At the moment I’m part of a team of 14 people working on a new magazine called UpStart which is part of our Postgraduate Diploma course.
UpStart is aimed at the UK startup community, hoping to provide something more useful, interesting and relevant to people who have small businesses than traditional business media which tends to cater for bigger, less creative, higher turnover businesses. We want to speak to the people working for themselves, either on their own or in a small team, avoiding the ‘men in suits’ image of the business media. People who don’t so much see themselves as businesswomen and businessmen but people who have their own businesses.
Currently we are working on issue two of the magazine but you can see issue one here on Issuu, any feedback gratefully received.
