Graphic Design Alumna Publishes Her Own Magazine

As a child, Stephanie Price ’13 always wanted to start her own magazine.

She finally got her chance after graduating from Moore with a BFA in Graphic Design.

“I had modeled in the past and was published in a few magazines that were privately owned by people like me,” she said. “I was like – I have skills as a designer, why can’t I do a magazine on my own?”

Today, Price is a freelance designer and also the sole founder, designer and creative director of NUMiNOUS magazine, a bi-monthly publication created by artists for artists and art enthusiasts. The magazine displays artwork from artists around the globe of every medium, from fashion design to photography to illustration.

The first issue, “The Surreal Issue,” was published in January and can be purchased through magcloud.com (digital or hard copy issue).

“The goal of the magazine is to spread the word about different artists and designers, both locally and across the country, and to inspire people to create things,” Price said.

According to a Website called ‘Otherwordly,’ “Numinous” describes an experience that makes you “fearful yet fascinated, awed yet attracted -- the powerful, personal feeling of being overwhelmed and inspired.”

“I really liked the definition of the word and it fit the feel for the magazine,” Price said.

She partnered with Mad Girl Productions, an entertainment and production company, to get the word out about the magazine. She also held a release party in January.

“We help promote each other through social media and events,” she said.

Attending Moore helped propel her dreams of starting a magazine forward, Price said. She learned a lot and had a great experience completing her required junior year internship at Inked magazine.

“I feel like Moore is definitely always there to help you,” she said. “Someone was always there to support me. Moore does a good job of helping out their students and there are lots of opportunities to take advantage of.”
