How I Made My Music Magazine Contents Page

  1. 1. How I made my music magazine contents page...<br />Amy Harriss<br />
  2. 2. Here I have started my contents page by choosing the ‘star avenue’ text I used for my front page as the main contents header. I was previously going to use the text I used for my front cover masthead (Alice from dafont.com) however I didn’t think the text looked as good due to the T’s being in capital. Here’s what it would have looked like: <br />
  3. 3. I then added a black rectangle behind the text to make it stand out with contrast and look more attractive. This I put on a slant. <br />
  4. 4. Using a brush tool I created a textured effect on the black text box. I have used a dark green colour. <br />
  5. 5. This is how it now looks with the box having a bit of texture. <br />
  6. 6. Here I have now added the name of the magazine ‘Musicrox’ to the left hand side of the page in the same text used on the front cover masthead. I have put this at a slant.<br />
  7. 7. Here I have started to add some design to the contents by using a blue coloured brush. <br />
  8. 8. Here I have used the same brush in black to create another design feature. I free transformed the brush to be at a different angle.<br />
  9. 9. I have then added a small blue brush tool to create an effect behind the Musicrox logo.<br />
  10. 10. I have then added 3 black boxes as headers for were I will put my contents information. I have used a bevel and emboss effect on the boxes to give them a modern, standing out effect.<br />
  11. 11. Here I have added text in the 3 black boxes as headers. I have made this text white so it stands out on the black.<br />
  12. 12. Here I have started to work on an image to put on my contents. This is a picture that goes with my main feature on my front page.<br />
  13. 13. Using the magnetic lasso tool I cut out the image of the artist and transferred it onto my contents page.<br />
  14. 14. I then edited this image with the black and white tool, I chose the red filter to make the image appear darker.<br />
  15. 15. Using the free transform tool I have made the image smaller.<br />
  16. 16. I have now added some text onto the contents in blue and black. <br />
  17. 17. Here I have added some more effects with some brushes around the image.<br />
  18. 18. Here I have used a Polaroid effect brush in which I will put a picture in to draw attention to another feature in the magazine.<br />
  19. 19. I have now added an image in the Polaroid. <br />
  20. 20. Here I have added some text that goes with the image in the Polaroid effect. <br />
  21. 21. I have now added some text next to the picture of my main feature to draw attention to it and show the page number. <br />
  22. 22. I have now added a splat effect in black next to the Polaroid picture. <br />
  23. 23. Here I have added a title for an editor’s note. I have given this a drop shadow effect.<br />
  24. 24. Here I have added an editor’s note and used a drop shadow effect on this too. <br />
  25. 25. I have now added a rounded box in white around the editor’s note. To avoid covering up the design I previously have done I reduced the opacity. I have then used bevel and emboss and the stroke effects to make the box stand out more. <br />
  26. 26. Finally, using a Manhattan city skyline brush tool I have created an effect at the bottom of the page. I used free transform to move the image into the blank space. The text for my main feature I moved to fit in with the new image. <br />
