I learnt some skills about the persistence and endurance needed when involved in making a magazine work.

• Contacting clients and obtaining high resolution images to go alongside the copy.
• Attending press releases.
• Interviewing people via phone, my favourite of these was with the creator of 'Biba' Barbara Hulanicki and the creative director of 'STOMP'.
