About  
Background

The inspiration for this magazine came from growing up on indulgent tween celebrity magazines such as Bop and Tigerbeat, which incorporated interactive quizzes that provided indulgent self-reflection and insight. These types of magazines are also known as “teen bait” due to their loud and busy design. Next-Gen would be taking the success that these magazines offer into a new design for tweens that would stand out in the magenta headlines.
