Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the full product.
The tools I used when producing my YC magazine and the tools I used when producing my final magazine... From the lists of tools I used in each magazine, I can see that I used a lot more tools in the making of my final magazine. This shows my progression from my YC magazine and shows how my Photoshop skills have improved. Final Magazine
Improvements since my YC magazine... Bigger Masthead When designing my final product I decided that my masthead must be much bigger than it was in my YC magazine. I wanted it to stand out so that it would attract my audience.
My final magazine looks much better with a clear background as it makes it look more professional. This is an improvement from my college magazine as for that I didn’t do anything to the background and kept the background from the image. I used the background eraser to make this improvement. 2.Clear Background behind image
3. Variety of cover lines with different fonts and colours When I made my YC magazine my cover lines were all written in similar fonts and in black. This looked boring and nothing stood out therefore when I made my final magazine I used colour and different fonts to make my front cover more interesting. I also used drop shadow to add interest to some of my cover lines.
4. Bar code, price and issue number My YC magazine did not feature a bar code, price or issue number. Therefore when I made my final magazine I made sure I included these conventions.
