We have been briefed to create an double page A4 magazine layout that discusses our theme of digital connectivity. This has to include a contextual image to reflect our article.
I started looking for precedents in the magazines that I read already. I looked at the articles and marked out where I thought the grid lines would be to make some kind of order out of the page arrangement. The National Geographics I had were really minimal and organised layouts.
I decided to look at other layouts too. I had a big stack of ‘Homes & Interiors Scotland so took a look at a few of theirs. I found them to be similar but preferred the cleaner look of the National Geographic Ones.
I then attempted to mock up my own Nat Geo style magazine layout. I’m not sure how I feel about the look and may start looking elsewhere for inspiration as my layout seems a bit dull.
