Issue 26 was another fantastic issue which had a really good mix of magazine design features. Below, I discuss a selection of designs that were interesting or a bit different from the norm.
Gel Girls – Double Page Article Spread
This shoot really caught my eye and I really enjoyed working with the images for the article design. The shapes used behind the image gave me the idea of applying a border around the images using the InDesign colour picker to choose the pink. I also angled the images to compliment the triangle shapes.
I choose white text placed over the image so as not to lose the image with a block of colour.
I carried the design on to the second double-page spread but this time with a purple border around the images.
The layout actually took some thought, as I wanted to use the images as large as possible but needed to fit in a fair amount of text from the model write-ups. I think the balance worked well and is really effective.
