3. If you were starting your own magazine and your livelihood depended on it selling well and your sanity depended on it being something you wanted to spend all you time on, what would it be? What sorts of writers and artists would you hire? What subject matter would it deal with? How would you want it to look?
First of all, I'd want the magazine to stand out from the rest, visually. It would promote artists work and have a section for q&a. The magazine would be very visual, with vibrant color and design. I would want it to be sculptural too, with paper craft pop-up elements and/or removed elements, like Noriko Ambe's work. I'd hire talented, hard working artists who were in a financial bind... like me.

4. List ten non-magazine clients that you would like to work with. Why are these dream clients? Find and record their contact information.
I'd like to work for any design firm or company available, so really all of them would be dream clients, but I've listed a few regardless.
