Forward Feed Magazine – Marijuana: Dangerous & Risky Issue
Targeted Prevention for High School and College Students
The Problems Facing Prevention Education
Reaching young people with effective prevention information is a tricky business. Digitally delivered content is often ignored, social media advertising is easy to miss and traditional broadcast media is difficult to produce and expensive to deploy. So what to do? Reason dictates that placing information directly into the hands of young people is an effective way to ensure that at least a prevention impression is made. But will they read it?
We created Forward Feed Magazine with the target audience, your high school and college-aged young people, in mind. Our idea was to use a magazine style format with cutting-edge design, filled with images of “relatable” young people, and packed with just the right amount of prevention information to change the attitudes and opinions of its readers.
We took great pains in developing and designing the content so that the main prevention message of each section is clearly identifiable at first glance. Bold headlines and main ideas take precedence. Readers may “drill-down” for greater detail and nuance. Where possible, information is delivered by bullet point. Large text blocks have been eliminated, making way for smaller “chunks” of content. The design utilizes large, bold images, with a small text-to-image ratio to encourage reading.
