MAGAZINE TASK:

Designer

You’re extremely creative, profoundly imaginative, and an original thinker. You see something in your head, and your brain has a way of figuring out how it should come into existence. You see something in the world, and you already know how to improve it tenfold. You have the power to affect people’s emotions and the ability to truly change how people perceive things.
