The MBE Magazine team was looking for an experienced and creative graphic designer to design their quarterly print magazine. They needed someone with a strong understanding of visual storytelling, typography, color theory, and photography/illustrations. The ideal candidate also needs to be organized, multitask, and thrive under pressure, with at least five years of professional experience in print magazine design.

Additionally, our team was able to make changes based on the feedback of MBE's editorial team while keeping a positive attitude and having seamless communication throughout the process. This enabled us to produce an end product that exceeded MBE's expectations and contributed to their bottom line. All in all, I Am ART Agency provided MBE with a high-quality design that fully encapsulated the purpose of their magazine.
