Fashion Editorial For RealStyleNetwork.com

realstylecoverAs a Fashion Editorial Intern at RealStyleNetwork.com between June to August 2011, I wrote daily beauty, health and fashion content based on current trends and news and designed graphics for articles and featured content slider images.

I also had the opportunity to create all of the layouts for a 42 page online magazine, while communicating revisions with a team of editors. I also kept production on track by sourcing images and submitting spreads in a timely fashion. Below are some of the layouts from the Fall 2011 issue!
