TOPIC: Thoughts about production week and what you thought worked or didn't and what you would do differently.
Production week was a bit more like production day this year. It was a bit stressful due to some communication errors but overall it was a good learning experience.
Next time, it might be better to work on getting the complete final layout done at least a couple of weeks before it needs to be sent to the printer so any issues can have the time to be resolved and staff will have plenty of time to make small changes.
It would have been nice to make the production of the magazine a little more collaborative. It can be discouraging when not everyone shows up, but having more people contribute to the overall layout would have allowed them to learn more hands-on and it could lead to more creativity.
