Octagon Magazine: A conceptual print publication for British & Irish MMA fans

A mock-up of the Octagon Magazine front covers

Octagon Magazine is the production of my final university Sports Journalism project developed over a five-month period. The conceptual 68-page publication focused on British & Irish mixed martial arts as the sport continues to grow. The project involved original layout design and content creation and achieved a mark of 94 – the highest ever awarded by the marking lecturer.

Note: Some photographs were used with permission under academic exemption and accredited appropriately within the publication. The contents of the magazine were not digitally published in their entirety and were not sold for profit.
