This magazine mock-up is a project I designed using Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator. I created the concept for this magazine using inspiration from my favorite travel magazines—like Condé Nast Traveler—except I focused on showcasing my birthplace, Guatemala. This magazine is only meant to demonstrate my graphic design experience; the writing (other than headlines and subheads) is done by ChatGPT.
