Seventeen Magazine 2014 Homework Diary

I’m so thrilled to be designing the Seventeen Magazine homework diary for the second year in a row. Last year I contacted the editor out of the blue, and asked if I could design the diary – a big step for a freelancer just starting out, as 40 000 copies are printed! Thankfully, the divine Janine Jellars put her faith in me, and since then I also designed their matrix dance insert, in their latest issue (I’ll share that soon).

If you know me, then you know I love diaries. I love notebooks and stationery and anything I can write down lists on. I like making a note of what I’ve done each day, how I spent my weekends and most of all – decorating my diary. You could say I’m the diary queen. I’m so, so , so excited to be having another chance at working on the 2014 version – it’s gonna be hotter than EVER (which is saying something because last year’s was awesome!).

Below I’ve included the proposal that I sent to them. We’re not sticking to it exactly, but it’ll be something along these lines – it’s what I’m using as inspiration.

There’s just something about all these bright colors and quirky designs that make me want to lie outside drinking margaritas on a hot summer’s day in a field of daisies. Daydreaming much? Anyway… Here’s the design I did for this year’s homework diary…
