Congratulations to Charlotte Cumming and Ella Campbell (Class of 2023), whose magazines were selected for exhibition in Top Designs 2024 as part of the VCE Season of Excellence. Their work is currently being showcased at the Melbourne Museum until Sunday 14 July, amongst many other inspiring and innovative high-scoring products produced by Media, Design and Technology students from across Victoria.

Media received over 400 submissions to this year’s Top Designs; 42 of which were shortlisted and only 11 Media - Print students were selected for exhibition. Well done Charlotte and Ella on this outstanding achievement!

‘The Zen Zone’, by Ella Campbell, is a magazine that provides entertainment, inspiration and motivation about healthy habits, aimed at an adolescent audience. Interactive elements have been implemented throughout the product, so the act of engaging with the magazine will simultaneously allow consumers to take time for themselves and practise mindfulness. Using a playful and contemporary style, original graphics, photography and text were created to align with the wellbeing genre.

‘Atlas Magazine’, by Charlotte Cumming, tours Melbourne, highlighting all the best places to visit, eat, drink and shop to experience the city like a local. With a particular focus on inner-Melbourne suburbs, ‘Atlas Magazine’ delves into the melting pot of cultures, characters, and experiences that all contribute to the unique and dynamic atmosphere Melbourne is known and loved for.
