Abstract

As a double major in graphic design and French, I am always looking for ways to combine the two disciplines together. My love for French, interest in publication design, and desire to work with video games made me decide to develop a video game magazine. The featured articles are written entirely in French and include two articles about fictional games I intend to create, a research paper on the history of games and the French company Ubisoft, and a paper on the role of art in games. All other text in the magazine, including advertisements and captions, are in French as well. I have developed all of the illustrations and am responsible for the overall design layout, and feel I have successfully mixed my knowledge of French and design into one final project. I would love to share this project at the Showcase of Research and Engagement!
