My School magazine front cover For the Preliminary Exercise I was asked to create a school magazine front cover and contents page. I will show here how exactly I made the school front cover.
The Main Image This is the main image I have used as the background image. It is a mid shot of a school student holding a gold ‘A’ to show great results in the school.
Splash for the price I added this splash for the price to go on to look effective and to make it stand out at the top of the page by the masthead.
Adding the price The next step I took was to add a text box over the splash so I could write in the price. It had to fit in the splash so I had to write the price smaller.
The Masthead Now I added the masthead onto the front cover by adding a text box at the top of the page and typing in the name of the magazine. I then individually highlighted each letter to make it different.
Main Cover line This is the main cover line that I used on the magazine.
Extra Cover Lines I added two more cover lines to the magazine.
The Date Then I added the date under the Masthead.
Issue Number I then added the issue number at the top of the magazine.
