Outside, Interactive produces magazines such as Outside, Clean Eating, Peloton, Yoga Journal, Backpacker, Climbing, Outside Business Journal, Triathlete, Beta, Ski, and five National Park Trip Journals including Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Jackson Hole and Colorado. These are all publications that I worked on daily. Other out-of-print magazines include Oxygen, Velo News, Better Nutrition, Women’s Running and Gym Climber. Each magazine has up to 50 or more ads that need to pass the pre-flight process and adhere to certain printing specifications, as well as some ad designing. Attention to detail was of the utmost importance, as clients were large companies that could potentially cancel high-dollar contracts if anything were to get printed incorrectly.
The above gallery shows the Marketplace pages that several different publications include in their layouts. This one shows the Marketplace pages for Outside magazine. These pages were one of my main duties to set up per instructions from Sales Associates. Proofs are sent off to the Sales Associate for approval or feedback and corrections.
Above: One of the most exciting and satisfying things to me is seeing my name in the masthead of each magazine I worked on! At one point, Outside Interactive had about 13 publications. Pictured above are some of the most recent and/or out of print covers from just a few of the teams I was a part of.
