    Re: on collage magazines...........!!!!!

    Hai Chetan,

    Nice initiative. What do you have in mind? Is it going to be a magazine completely related to engineering or is it for publishing articles, poems, drawings, etc?

    Make sure that you edit it well before publishing, especially if it's creative ideas that you want to display. Also the process is not going to be any easy, so keep a good content column. If you have a lot of similar topics, mix them up with other content on different pages.

    Also make sure that the fonts are legible enough and strike the eye. Do not go for a lot of crazy fonts. Try to separate only the fonts in the title section, the rest you can use a common font.

    If you are including pictures, make sure that you set the pixel rate properly or else you'll be in for a shock after the magazine gets printed. As for the content, do not copy and paste. Try to include own ideas, but make sure your department in-charge sees that the content is proper.

    The rest is all up to your talent and interest.

    As for the name, i'll suggest it once you give me the description of your magazine.

    We had started a magazine in our college for computer science department. We called it 'The Byte'
    Is your magazine for all branches or only for mech department?

    PS: Thread moved to appropriate section.

    Considering the above suggestion that the magazine will be technology oriented (mechanical oriented) give it a name which will make it sound like technology. For example, our department magazine is called "The Differential" and College magazine is called " Catalyst"

    As you are going to include career related things too, it should look like you are trying to "make a difference" for students. So how about naming your magazine on a word synonymous to *Change*?

    P.S: A brand name is permanent. Think thrice before choosing it. :)

    If it's a magazine about your department, then these might help:

    Codeness
    (Coder Intensiveness)
    CodeRev (Coder Reviews)
    PYSCODE or PSYCODERS (Psycho Code/Coders)

    What's your college name? Can mess with it as well.:whistle:
