On Board Magazine

Updated: Apr 2, 2020

On Board magazine is a bi-monthly technical publication written and developed for individuals in the Marine Service industry. This magazine provides technical advice and information about Yamaha outboard engines to over 9,000 readers. I develop content by approaching subject matter experts (SME) for industry-relevant topics and information. Then, I will write a rough draft to submit to the SME for review. Once I receive the approval that the information is credible, I edit and format the magazine with the support of Yamaha’s technical publications team.

I have spent a lot of time completing audience analysis’ to write on an academic level that is suitable for the workers in this industry. This document is written for an audience on a 9th-grade reading level.

Lastly, in late 2019, I submitted a proposal to reformat and redesign the magazine. The following document is the first issue of On Board magazine to feature my redesign.
