This semester for our Diploma of Graphic Design course we will be producing a body of creative works for our first exhibition. One of the deliverables that us students are working on is a 2 page magazine spread.
Below are a number of my mockups that I’ve whipped up in Adobe Illustrator and it features some of my custom Album Cover artworks:
In my first mockup I chose to design a relatively simple layout but with vertically running sub-headings to give it a creative edge.
In my second mockup I explored further into the placement and orientation of type presentation within a layout.
‘Spread 3 – Version 1’
In this version of my third mockup I included some visual elements to determine the readability of the text.
‘Spread 3 – Version 2’
Version 2 shows a little more refinement of my first version.
In my final mockup I decided to throw most page layout templates out of the way. I didn’t consider using margins, regular paragraph alignment and readability wasn’t really factored in. Now-a-days I’m finding magazines are pushing the limits of regular editorial design layouts.
