For my senior thesis I received special permission to do a project instead of a paper. I named my magazine Ignite, and it is a promotional magazine. The magazine target audience is primarily high school juniors and seniors who are interested in attending Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. I completely designed the magazine from beginning to end, with the exception of the photographs. The photographs used are ones approved by the Liberty University Marketing Department that the author has permission to reprint. This way, if Liberty University decides to add this publication to their line of products the school already has the copyrights to the images. All graphic design elements and writings are the sole creation of the author.

The goal of this magazine is to help Liberty University and to help prospective students as they are going through their college selection process. I want this magazine to be something that Liberty can use for years to come with bits of updating throughout the years as the school sees fit. I believe this magazine can be used to create interest in Liberty University and will be something that few other colleges can offer to students. It is something I would like to give back to the school for the experiences I have been blessed to have here.
