Hello I’m Alice Harrison, Co-Founder, Creative Director and Editor of the print publication Mutt Magazine. During 2017 I graduated with a High First Class Honours Degree in Fashion Communication and Promotion and temporarily relocated to Berlin to pursue my passion for the editorial industry, working as the Editorial Intern at iGNANT Magazine. Over the last three years, I have become immersed within the broad landscape of visual communication. I have developed skills and gained experience in areas such as Art/Creative Direction, Visual/Written Communication, Concept Development/Idea Generation, Editorial and Graphic Design, Film and Photography Editing and Project Management. My portfolio so far is inherently personal, utilising my passion for editorial design to explore my interests, for example my interest in the perceptions of eroticism within our digital culture. Similarly, Mutt Magazine was fuelled by my compassion for the cause, creating emotional bonds with my consumer base and details an exuberant and architecturally- inspired aesthetic. I'm currently available and looking to channel my passion for visual communication, enthusiasm and diverse skill set into my next role. Don't hesitate to get in touch. email@example.comLocked Pro Plan feature
Seeking to remove myself from my comfort zone, I temporarily relocated to Berlin to work at iGNANT, the award-winning magazine focused on art, architecture, and design. I thrived in a small editorial team and a fast-paced environment. I was responsible for the strategising, management and creation of original content, both editorially and digitally. Additionally to my editorial position, I proposed concepts for iGNANT Production, which were taken forward and I became solely responsible for. As such, I channeled my skills in idea generation, creative direction and project management regarding a short film which will be premiered later this year. By moving to Berlin I also strived to network with and build relationships with individuals in the European independent publishing industry.
Briefed by Stack Magazines, I was tasked with devising and creating a brand new niche publication. Mutt Magazine is an independent and exuberant publication, created in response to our compassion for the cause, which seeks to better the chances for rescue dogs. My skill set was present in every aspect of the project production and management, from concept to execution and promotion. I was responsible for idea and name generation, concept development, design recipe and application of such, content development, promotion via digital platforms and physical events, printing specifications and communications. Post-university, I strived to continue feeding my passion for print, working on Mutt Magazine’s physical and digital presence, liaising with printers and stockists. Through this process I gained valuable experience regarding distribution and sales of an independent publication. Mutt Magazine is now sold in magCulture and Fetch & Follow in London and Athenaeum Nieuwscentrum in Amsterdam. Mutt Magazine was nominated as Student Magazine of the Year by the 2017 Stack Magazines Awards.
I was responsible for sourcing content for online features and writing weekly articles. I interviewed artists internationally and generated concepts for the forthcoming issues of the print publication, ‘Print Isn’t Dead’.
I was responsible for writing weekly articles for the fashion, arts and culture magazine. I sourced content for the publication’s digital presence and contributed to the idea generation of the forthcoming print issues.
Having recently graduated from Nottingham Trent University with a High First Class Honours in Fashion Communication & Promotion, I have obtained valuable understanding in communicating within our contemporary visual-first culture. The course primarily focused on visual communication and fashion media. As such, I have gained extensive experience in a range of sectors: creative/art direction, idea generation, art working, editorial design, project management, photo and video editing, promotions and marketing and trend forecasting.
