The latest themed special was Black and White, so the whole magazine design was using black and white photography with a dash a colour here and there.
The cover is by Horror Photographer and Makeup Artist Rick Jones (Horrify Me) with model Megan Biffin. This shoot was specifically shot for the cover, as anyone who has black and white hair… needed to be on this cover!
I love graphic design, as you’re probably getting by now… well that’s assuming you’ve read my other posts of course! My true love is magazine design… which is handy, being that I am the editor in chief of PHOTOSHOOT Magazine, a creative behind-the-scenes trade magazine.
I use Adobe InDesign for all my magazine designs. I find it such a fantastic tool and use it for all my graphic design work.
Below are some layout examples used for the PHOTOSHOOT Magazine Black and White Themed Special.
Double Page Spreads
I used a simple layout for this article by David Edwards. The quote lifted the page well, with a 2 column layout to follow. The portrait image to the right worked perfectly
I chose to use a circus-themed background to bring in a splash of colour for the Simply Dazzling article profiling model Yaasmin.
This article was great fun with the team from Zomblogalypse. I used a variety of images and design ideas to break up the black and white tones. A splash of red for the blood splats and green for the text worked well.
This was a perfect editorial image to use for the Ever Realm Productions article. These are my favourite images to work, which enable text to be placed on the left-hand side.
