Changes after feedback – Magazine cover.
I started by looking at the colours used in magazine covers.
I noticed that film magazines often used 2 or 3 colours.
This contrasted with my magazine cover where I have used roughly 5
different colours which made the magazine cover look too busy.
To start with I started changing the colour of the text on my
magazine so that they were similar. I tried to keep to using – black,
white, yellow and red.
I used the colour fill to change the colour of the banner to a darker
grey than the original. I then dragged the text ‘Sneak peek behind
scenes – the settings’ into the banner so that it seemed ‘merged’
with the banner.
I then noticed that I had spelt ‘peek’ wrong in ‘sneak peak’ which I
had to change.
I have now started working on the fonts.
I have changed most of the information on the cover lines to
‘Casablanca SF’ and ‘Tennessee SF’.
I then adjusted the images on the banner so that there was an even
space in between each one.
I then inserted a print screen of a barcode that I got from the
internet. I had to change my barcode as my teacher said that the
original one looked unprofessional.
I used the crop tool to get rid of the areas that I didn’t want visible
and then made it smaller and placed it onto my magazine cover.
I then changed the text of the film title to ‘Colonial Light SF’ so that it
linked in with the other products.
This is what my magazine cover looked like after all the changes were
made that I mentioned above.
