My top 3 submissions for this issue would probably be my article on The Walking Dead, the Rush album review and my design for the exchange students graphic.
My first article "The 'Dead' Rise for third season... but not on dish" which can be found here was one of my best. I felt that for the first issue, the article really showed my strength as a journalist. I got some really good interviews and I thought I did a good job describing the show and getting people interested
The next article was a review called "Long awaited Rush album validates classic status" found here was another article I was really proud of. That article I did a lot of research on of my favorite bands. I didn't just throw out random things, I went out and researched the band and put the details I thought were most important. I was slightly critical of the band, but I also gave them lots of credit where it was deserved, which I feel is a journalists job.
When I was designing page 8 of issue 3, I designe this graphic. I received the the pictures and the information for the people, but the graphic was very bland and wouldn't fit on the page the way it was set up. So I changed up the boxes and moved around the pictures. When the graphic was done, it fit on the page really way and looked really good, I was proud of it.
