Transcript of "Construction and development cover"

  1. 1. Construction and DevelopmentCover
  2. 2. I had to decide which image will look best within the cover of my magazine, Ihad taken two shots as shown below, this will enable me to experimentand then decide on which looks suitable. I decided to use the secondimage because it looked more professional and the lighting was usedeffectively, the first image however was rather dull and would not givethat overall finish which I am looking for within my magazine cover
  3. 3. I then chose to input the title and a sub-article to on both images, this will allow me tocompare the images and evaluate it before making a decision, on both images I had used twodifferent colours to identify which looks more professional and the first one looked moreappealing due to it being more eye-catching and professional, I then decided toexperiment with different fonts, styles and colours. I did this because it was hard to find acould that stood out from the image as it was so colourful on its own. I experimented withred, blue and black and finally settled on white as it is a neutral colour which suits bothgenders and works well against the image.These are two images I used to experiment, this allowed me to see which was more appealing andattractive
  4. 4. The next step was to decide on the type of font and colour, I decided that the colours Iwould use are red, white and black, this is because these are the colours which standsout from the image ,I used two different fonts for my title and main feature as Ididn’t want them to look the same so they standout from each other. For my title I usedTrajan Pro, and for my main feature I used Felix titling. I decided to use the colourwhite for my title so I could put a white blur behind it to emphasis the word moretherefore it draws the eye to it before any other text. For my main feature text “J.h Iused the colour white, below that “exclusive” was written in red. After doing this Iwanted to put the bar code, price, issue and date into place before reviewing positionsfor my images. I put the bar code to the bottom right as this is where I would expect itto be on a professional magazine, therefore I decided to comply to the standardconventions of a magazine
  5. 5. The next step was to position my featuring articles. Firstly I decided on what Iwanted to include then experimented on positions and places. For each of myfeaturing articles I used different fonts to create more variety across the pagemaking each individual article stand out. The font for ” 2012” is Trajan pro SF, andthe font for “ Katrina kaif has been a new naughty girl” is Basic sans SF. Thecolour red and white have been combine as it gives it a distinctive look, howeversome of the text did not stand out so I had different affects which allowed the textto stand out.
  6. 6. The next step was to any additional information, the image I had used was the onlyone I had used,this is because I want the viewer to focus on the main image, so byproviding an image through the centre it will attract attention, following that I hadincluded some additional information under “2012″ which was on the right handside, I had spaced out 2012 individually which proved effective this is because theother sub-articles below aligned well with 2012, thus making it consistent andhaving an even flow, this was the original idea nothing looked out of placed orscattered as this will ruin the overall look of the page, I had also included aquestion along the left hand side of the cover, this is another addition which I madeas this add instant interest and the viewers will want to know more about themagazine.
  7. 7. The next step was to any additional information, the image I had used was the onlyone I had used,this is because I want the viewer to focus on the main image, so byproviding an image through the centre it will attract attention, following that I hadincluded some additional information under “2012″ which was on the right handside, I had spaced out 2012 individually which proved effective this is because theother sub-articles below aligned well with 2012, thus making it consistent andhaving an even flow, this was the original idea nothing looked out of placed orscattered as this will ruin the overall look of the page, I had also included aquestion along the left hand side of the cover, this is another addition which I madeas this add instant interest and the viewers will want to know more about themagazine.
