Matters Magazine

Abstract

MERCH

Matters Magazine is going to be a creative, collaborative, and educational fashion magazine. Created to inform people about things that matter, this magazine will touch on everything mental health. With mental health becoming an increasing problem in today’s society, our team wants to use beautiful visuals and text from Kent students and professionals to inspire others.

For people who have never personally dealt with mental health issues, it is almost impossible for them to understand or help someone struggling with it. We hope to be able to help communicate the struggles of mental health through our photoshoots, letting the reader interpret the images in a way that makes go through the same emotional journey.

This project will challenge our ability to take a creative concept and bring it to life, portraying the exact message that we want to give. Matters Magazine will encourage us to think outside of the box with not only our images, but our writing as well. It will start a conversation about mental health on Kent State’s Campus. It would bring an exciting new way to get people interested in taking about serious subjects. We believe that just like more people get their news from social media than newspapers, more people will be willing to talk about mental health if there is an entertainment and reliability factor.

Our mission is to humanize mental health, decreasing the stigma that comes with it and making students more comfortable with getting help for themselves or others.
