Course Description

In this lab-intensive course, students use skills learned in previous courses to produce the printed issue of Pacific Rim Magazine, the key project of the Digital and Print Publishing program. Students learn how to create colour proofs and assess contract proofs supplied by the commercial printer. This full-colour prepress process, one of the most sophisticated and widely-used forms of publishing, is a major focus of the Digital and Print Publishing program. Once the newsstand quality magazine is printed, it is distributed throughout the Vancouver area. Other topics include preflighting publication files, working to a magazine schedule, and tracking time.

Registration in this course is restricted to students admitted to the Diploma in Publishing and the Diploma in Digital and Print Publishing.

Prerequisite(s): A minimum "C" grade in PUBL 1161 (may be taken concurrently).
