Step 1 First of all I started with a black background then used PS brushes for the skyline. I then got the text from dafont and filled in the letters in various colours.
Step 2 I changed the paintbrush to a simpler one for the skyline then added a picture of Lex for the background. I added the main coverline.
Step 3 I changed the masthead to a more simpler design as I felt it looked better than the previous one. I changed the contrast of the picture of Lex so that the orange in her hair matched the orange text beside her. I added the barcode, price, date and issue number.
Step 4 On here moved most of the text to the left third of the page then added an email dress underneath the masthead for the magazine.
