SECOND YEAR MAKING MAGAZINES PROJECT This module simulated working print tuns bi-weekly to give hands on magazine production and page design experience.


aking Magazines was a compulsory second year module which taught valuble magazine production and page design skills using Adobe InDesign. Each member of the group was required to be Editor of their own publication under a selected genre. They had to come up with a flat plan, delegate relevant pages and ensure smooth production over a period of two weeks. This process taught valuble team building skills, management skills and organisation skills. Not only this, the regular experience of being part of a mock print run drilled in the importance of time management and working

under pressure to meet deadlines. Included in this issue are the pages I contributed to team member’s different publications and a brief summary of each one. There is also the magazine I was Editor of, alternative men’s lifestyle magazine, Trashmag. Making Magazines has taught and improved my Adobe InDesign skills to the point where I feel confident and competent at designing pages to a high standard. It has also introduced Adobe Photoshop and how to source high resolution, print quality images. I am happy to contribute my design skills as well as writing skills to any future projects.

Of Ethics extiles T The campaign to create an ethical industry continues and the moral issues surrounding textile production are vast. Helen Archard investigates.

The fashion and textiles industry is a constant disposable cycle with billions being spent on items a year yet tonnes and tonnes being disposed of at the same time. This pressure for materials to work with can test the morals of all this industry’s members. The ethics of the textile and fashion industry cover a range of different areas around how materials are produced and how the people making them are treated.


Globalisation has had a massive effect on the textile industry and it’s important to keep ethics at the forefront of everyone’s minds from start to finish of production. With around one million tonnes of textile and clothing being disposed of each year, it’s not the most environmentally friendly industry. People are encouraged to pass on old clothes, give them to charity or use them for cleaning rags rather than just binning them.

The main problems however are at the complete opposite end of the spectrum when the fabrics are just a twinkle in the designer’s eye. The Ethical Fashion Forum is an organisation dedicated to promoting sustainability and ethical practice in the future of the fashion industry. This includes fair trade, sufficient working conditions and animal welfare amongst other issues.For a start, the materials themselves should be created in

with the environment and workers in mind before price. Insecticides and pesticides and harmful chemical dyes and softening agents are a large problem in the growth of plants even before they are turned into material. The Pesticide Action Network UK is an organisation ‘working to eliminate the dangers of toxic pesticides’. They are harmful to human health as well as the environment and can cause severe poisoning as well as having links to other health issues including cancer. The World Health Organisation estimates between 20,000 and 40,000 cotton farmers die each year through accidental pesticide poisoning. The fact that some of them stay embedded in the environment for many years after their initial use means that their effects are damaging and ongoing. Of the worlds insecticides, 25% are used in the farming in the cotton industry. These are harmful to the farmer producing the crop and not really something you’d want absorbed into the core of a garment. It is a priority to bring fair trade certified cotton to the forefront of the textiles industry which will have benefits for all involved. Many high end fashion designers support the campaign for organic cotton including Katharine Hamnett who promites a number of ‘save the world’ causes through her statement garments. Iconic Italian fashion designer Alberta

Ferreti has also created an organic line showing ethical practice can reach the queens of the catwalk as well. It’s not only the poisonous toxicity of these chemicals which challenge ethics but the expense of their use can be financially damaging to the farmers driving thousands to suicide each year. There are plent of other natural fabric alternatives to using the factories which fail at morally correct work ethics. Hemp is an ecologically viable material which can be combined with other materials to create a variety of shapes, textures and elasticity. Wool can create a risk as it is usually be using a toxic sheep dip so choose organic wool.Other ethically correct fabrics include linen, wild silk, tencel, modal,

lyocell and recycled polyester. Take advice from Rapanui, a brand that use fabrics produced in eco friendly factories with good and fair work ethic for its employees. Exploitative working conditions are just another strand of the ethics of the textiles industry. Violence, abuse, unhygienic conditions, long hours, bad pay and child labour are all considered unethical and it’s important to not to be associated with this. The World Fair Trade Organisation are another governing body who monitors the trading standards of its members with a strict set of guidelines in place. It’s time to make the fashion world an ethically pleasing permanent trend.

Cadbury The Easter Bunny is preparing for his annual visit and the Cadbury’s chocolate chickens are laying their delicious mini and creme eggs all over the shops. Although we know they’re delicious on their own, there are lots of ways to get a bit more adventurous with a whole range of Cadbury’s treats. Here are just a few mouth-watering recipes we’ve gathered together for our keen chocolate fans.

When the mixture is cool, take a teaspoon and scoop up some of the mixture onto the teaspoon. 6. Place the teaspoon amount of mixture onto the plate with the chocolate sugar strands. 7.

Celeb Exercise Secrets


Celebrities are always at the forefront of fashionable fitness to keep themselves red-carpet HOT. Here are some of the latest exercise techniques our taut and toned superstars swear by.




Fitness goddess Madonna is the ultimate keep-fit Queen. Although some would argue that she should keep her 50-year-old body under wraps, our Madge flaunts her muscular, scultpted figure at every opportunity. Her hardcore 6-day a week fitness plan incorportes numerous forms of exercise but one area she swears by is the power plate. This newfangled contraption provides the benefits of an hours workout in 15 minutes. The ominous looking machine sends vibrations through the different muscle areas forcing them to contract and therefore tone.You can find power plates in most gyms or specialist centres all over the UK.



Our celebrity idols are blessed with a lifestyle that provides them with the time and money for swanky gyms, top personal trainers and the latest fitness ideas right to the doorstep of their million pound mansion. We’ve all seen them clad in lycra and tracksuits, designer of course, which show they battle the same body hang-ups as us normal folk. Luckily for them their rose-tinted lifestyle allows them to partake in the ultimate fitness programmes to create those enviably fit and toned figures. Whether its wobbling around on a vibrating machine or sweating away in a heated room whilst balancing on one leg, some of these celeb fads show sometimes you’re not too posh to perspire.







Hand in hand with yoga is the old celebrity favourite, Pilates. Madonna was the mother of this trend which has been doing the celebrity fitness plan circuit for a good few years and has a long list of dedicated celebrity followers including Gwyneth Paltrow. Like yoga, Pilates is based around balance and inner toning as well as outer. For a leaner, suppler and more flexible figure. It’s like the middle ground between the slow stretching postures of yoga and the energetic, pulse racing aerobics.

Supermodel Helena Christensen is the front of Reeboks Easytone trainer campaign showing off her womanly yet super toned figure in their racy nude advertising campaign. These shoes claim you will be able to feel them working as you walk around and go about your day to day life. The only effort involved is tying the shoelaces. So, for a super toned lower half maybe it’s time to invest. Surely it’s too good to be true.

Celebrities have been a massive fan of the physical and spiritual benefits of yoga for years. This strain of it takes it to new extremes and combines 26 postures and two breathing exercises whilst in a room of up to 100 degrees heat. Petite Jennifer Aniston is a student of this intense Yoga style as is Lady Gaga. As the sweat oozes out of your body the idea is that it takes all the toxins of day to day life including caffeine, nicotine, alcohol and metabolic waste with it whilst transporting oxygen to every area of your body. Now sweating for 90 minutes may not sound like the most glamorous of activities but if it’s good enough for Aniston it’s good enough for us!



Some of our superstars may not be keen on the standard intense yoga sessions which are held in a quiet, relaxed, zen-like atmosphere to nurture the inner calm. The gorgeous Reese Witherspoon is a keen runner but also partakes in YogaHop which is the traditional yoga techniques mashed up with contemporary music and bright colours. Like an East meets West, Americanised form of the inner and outer balance regime, YogaHop is more high energy and fun. This fad tends to be found more in the US. HEALTHY Woman


Always Read the Label It’s winter again, the time of year we go into hibernation mode, stocking up on guiltfree treats to tide us through the dark, cold nights. It can be hard to stick to our true vegetarian roots though with a lot of items containing sneakily disguised animal products. Here are just a few which caught us by surprise and proof why we must always remember to check that label for the ‘Suitable for Vegetarians’ seal of approval. 00

So picture the scene, the family wrapped up warm, top to toe in wool huddled round a beautiful bonfire. It’s like a picture from a Christmas card. When it comes to the roasting of the marshmallows though beware. these delicious sugary pillows are usually made with gelatin, a colourless product produced from a gory process involving animal by-products such as skin and bone. It can often also be found in jelly, some sweets (sorry kids) and even some cereal and yogurt. Definitely one to watch.

As a vegetarian dairy products always pose the ‘should you shouldn’t you’ argument at the borderline of veganism. For those who just can’t like without it, you may want to be aware that cheese may not be completely vegetarian friendly. There is a product called RENNET which is sourced from the stomach lining of calves to help thicken the milk into its cheese form. There is cheese out there which is safe for vegetarians just keep your eyes peeled.

Just a little heads up for the grown ups now. Unfortunately part of some alcohol’s process, known as ‘fining’ or ‘clearing’, is usually done using animal products. This used to be done with ox blood in wine and fish products in beer but now it can be done using a range of different animal products. Again, there are vegetarian wines on the market and a lot of organic wines and companies specialising in using alternate methods of ‘clearing’ and it’s not all alcohol, but check just in case.

This last one may seem as obvious as cheese being a product of an animal but butter and margarine can also have some animal extras which may put you off. The ingredient Tallow is fat obtained from the tissue of cows and sheep and can be used in margarine and butter substittes. It’s also important to note that butter and marg. are often used in baking so by default the animal product can be transfered.
