Pacific Rim Magazine

Pacific Rim Magazine

There is no better way to learn than by doing.

PRM: the print edition

After a first term learning graphic design, Adobe software, and writing for publication, Digital and Print Publishing students produce Pacific Rim Magazine, a full-colour print publication distributed with Canada’s largest-circulation national newspaper, The Globe and Mail.

Students apply for positions in the Editorial, Art, Advertising, Production, or Promotions departments. In these positions, they collaborate with students in the Professional Photography and Business programs while learning the day-to-day operations of commercial print magazine production.

Imagine producing award-winning work in your second term. With Pacific Rim Magazine and the Digital and Print Publishing program, you can.

LangaraPRM.com: the online edition

In the summer Web Production course, Digital and Print Publishing students transform the magazine content into a website.

The experiential, project-based model used in the spring term is echoed, this time featuring web-specific teams: Editorial, Web Design, Front-End Development, Promotions, & Quality Assurance.

In May, students start working in HTML & CSS. By July, they're writing WordPress sites in PHP. The production of the website allows them to hone new coding and user experience abilities while refining design, writing, illustration, and Photoshop skills.

Awards

The awards given to PRM and LangaraPRM recognize not only the quality of our students’ work, but also the value of the experiential learning process at the heart of Pacific Rim Magazine: a hands-on real-world endeavour that teaches collaborative skills, professional practices and creative problem-solving.
