Every year featured a theme and notable alumni along with financial information, news, and a list of donors. The job required photographic art direction, working with the copy writer, editing, press checks at the printer, and seeing the job through the mail house.
Each issue had a theme which a concept was built around. The above issue was about nanotechnology, while researching, I read about the milestone made by IBM in 1990 when a team of physicists spelled out the letters "IBM" by controlling 35 individual atoms of xenon. To mark that effort, the words "Stanford Engineering" was debossed in the cover stock.
Each print issue had a companion website designed and hand-coded for it. The above animation highlights several homepage and subpage designs over the years.
