After choosing my title “The Latest Trend” I decided to work on a range of fonts which would go well with my background colour.
After looking at a range of colours, I decided to go with the plain white colour as I felt a lot could be done with it, and it was a shade/colour that appealed to all people, aswell as giving out the sense of both fun and innocence.
Finding the font
After scrolling through many different fonts and font colours, I decided to go with VAGRounded BT, with the colour dark blue. I thought the colour would add to the schooling theme whilst the font made it look fun. I then added different effects using Macromedia Fireworks such as “Drop Shadow” and widening the letters apart and ended up with the end result.
Experimenting with other effects
After experimenting with different colours and effects, I decided to go with a paint splattered look to symbolise the creativity of a school. I also felt a simpler effect could leave space to add in photo’s and headlines amongst other things.
Other effects I could have used: To note: I had previously asked around my fellow peers to see what kind of effects they liked the best with my title.
Experimenting with photos
After taking various different types of photos, I debilitated which photos I would and would not put in both my front cover and contents preliminary. These are the ones I chose (Please note it is compulsory to place a medium close up of a person on the front page).
Final changes and final product
After looking at my final product, I then decided I would make some changes to improve it even more. At first I decided to switch the canvas from white to black in order make the cover seem more appealing and so the over colours (blue and red) would contrast more heavily against it.
