Evaluation of the re-creation of the
The magazine on the left was the magazine I
was trying to create and think that I did an
okay job of doing it.
The program I used was the Adobe Indesign I thought that this was hard to use at first but when I got
used to the program I found that I could try to recreate to magazine front cover to the best of my
The tools that I used were:
Magic wand tool
Uses of a textbox
Rotating the Textbox
Gradient father tool
Rectangle frame tool
Have you learnt any new skills or used any tools you haven’t before?
There were a lot of new skills I learnt when making this magazine front cover. The skills that I learnt
were gradient feather tool which was much harder to use than Photoshop because it slightly
different to Indesign which I haven’t used before. I used the gradient feather tool for the background
of the magazine. The other skill I learnt was the Eyedropper tool which I used for changer the
colourof the text which also was different to Photoshop. The final skill I learnt was the Rectangle
frame tool which I used for the textboxes and also the background shape that needed to be filled in
with the gradient feather tool. Overall I learnt I a lot of new skill as I never re-created a magazine
front cover before.

Strength of the front cover are:
Matching the magazines front and text
Taking the photo
Organizing the magazines together
Adding the text
My weaknesses of the front cover are:
I could have been more organized when creating the magazine
I think that the background does not match the magazines front cover and it need to be
The picture of footballer could be bigger
Overall I think that my magazine re-creation went very well because I thought that the font and
colour of the text match the real magazine front cover. Also what I liked about this front cover was
that the circle with the text in side looked really eye catching because the text matched the yellow
background really well also it stood out and was one of the first things you see on the magazine. The
negative points of my magazine were that the background did not match the original magazine
background. Also what I did not like was that the picture of footballer on my re-creation was not
asbig as the original footballer so it did not match the magazine picture. And also some of the text
was a different angle then the original front cover.
Does it look like the original cover?
I think that the magazine I made was the same but it had a few problems such as the picture of the
footballer being too small when it should be covering most of the front cover and also being one of
the first things you see. Another point was that the background was a slightly different colour than
original background and the angles of the text could have been better.
What would you change or do differently if you did this project again?
One of the main things I would change if I was to do this project again is that I would like to make
the footballer bigger and cover more of the front cover. Also what I else I would do differently is that
the background could have been more shadow and that would of made the cover stand out more.
Overall I think that the front cover was good but there could have been some improvement to it.
