      Designing a Magazine Cover
    • Designing a Magazine Cover
      Masthead - magazine logo, easy to identify and read.
      Feature photo - At least one main illustration or photo as the main image on the cover page. The image should be edited in Photoshop to best suit your magazine.
      A selling line/slogan near the masthead which hints at the magazine’s theme.
      At least one cover line. The cover line will contain information about some of the main stories or articles in your magazine.
      A dateline/ price.

      Today you will be working alone.
      Create a magazine cover.
      Invent your own magazine, do not use an existing magazine.
      Who is your target audience?
