This Jersey Evening Post supplement, aimed at 14 to 20-year-olds, has undergone its first revamp in 13 years. The monthly magazine has expanded from four to 16 pages and is now printed in full colour. JEP editorial artist Ben Le Feuvre says the magazine is more streetwise and has improved visuals.
“The former Reality supplement was very text heavy so we’ve made the headlines bigger and bolder and it has become more graphic and image based. It looks a lot more visually interesting,” says Le Feuvre. The supplement covers news, fashion, entertainment, sports and lifestyle issues.
An accompanying website, also designed by Le Feuvre, provides previews of features in the magazine. “The website is bright, simple and user friendly,” he says.”The whole project has been well received.”
