Step One – Main Photo I started off with a picture of Mike Frost, with his face covering about half of the page
Step Two – Heading I added a title with a large quotation which also acted as a heading
Step Three - Timeline I created a layout for my timeline using blue boxes, where I could fit information and start to create the fabricated story of Mike’s career.
Step Four – The Life Story I came up with the story. It is the sort of exciting and lucrative life that a musician could lead. It was important to me that it was the style of writing that would be found in a music article.
Step Five – Album Covers Then I added two photos which I turned into album covers and added another quotation, the sort of funny and clever thing that someone under the influence would say, as this was the kind of character that I had created for Mike
Step Six – Song Descriptions Then I added some of the information about the individual songs that I put onto his album.
Step Seven – Filling In The Gaps Then I filled in some of the spaces with another quotation and then put a bullet holes effect onto the page to try to keep the page active and as though there were constantly things happening. Although something wasn’t right the colouration was poor so I decided I had two choices, first, change my colour scheme, or try decreasing the visibility of the background picture of Mike.
Step Eight – Darkening As you can see it worked very well and makes the text much more readable.
