Elizabeth Gulick Krenos is Senior Designer at Prevention Magazine, a
Rodale publication. Her responsibilities include design of all departments
and some features; photography concepts and direction; illustration and photography assignments; and coordination between the editorial staff, production persons and design department. As part of her earlier Rodale responsiblities, Liz has done Photoshop work on images, including covers; designed in-house ads, logos, t-shirts, and hats; and organized work-flow. Liz has worked for Rodale Publications since completing a graphic design internship at Rodale in 1999-2000.
Having remained with the same publication for a few years, I
have learned many aspects of
design and design management. There are many ways of achieving good design, although what each individual considers important is subjective. Having had the opportunity to work with six different art directors whose experience ranged from top magazines such as Business Week, TV Guide, Parents, Red Book, and All You, I have learned many different views of design and design strategies to attain the best design. My goal is to take all I have learned as a professional in the magazine industry, and pass it on to aspiring students. I will not only teach the basics of the design programs, but give them real-life projects and examples that will help them further their careers.
