Skald was a publication and promotion piece to display the work of students at Villa Maria College. Research on fellow institutions was conducted and it was found that most collegiate publications are traditional in their execution. To compete with the stagnant designs of our competitors we set out to differentiate ourselves in both design and content. The overlapping geometric shapes represent the many tasks the student takes, while the multiple perspectives signify how students must shift their primary focus towards a learning environment in a collegiate atmosphere.
SKALD has won 1st in Design from American Press Association, 1st in Design from Columbia Press Association, and the Silver Crown from Columbia Press Association
