What was your experience working on Issue 18?
My experience with Sparks at USF was amazing due to the wonderful people that helped and supported me. The process of creating the cover was probably my favourite! I really enjoyed the back and forth of ideas, thinking of color schemes, theories, abstract ideas, and so much more. The trials and errors were painstaking but with the help of Samia and the rest of the team, we were able to finish the magazine as a whole. What I really enjoyed was the teamwork.
