Magazine Layout Assignment
For a graphic design assignment, I was to create three different layouts for an imagined music magazine. I found some photos on a free stock pictures website and used different filters for each mood. I chose different typography and layouts as well. I made my design decisions based off the “vibe” each design was going for; formal, playful, and edgy. We were to use the same group of pictures, but we could decide on how many were used, depending on the layout.
After creating some sketches and grids to determine layout, I designed the three layouts in InDesign. We weren’t working with actual copy, so it was easy to fit the placeholder text into all the designs.
