A magazine spread I researched, photo researched, designed, and wrote about the Diana camera. I styled it after a travel sized version of an FHM magazine I picked up while studying abroad in Europe, so the dimensions are 9x7. I wanted to give it a gritty urban feel so I chose Synchro LET for the head and sub head and Helvetica for the body copy. The reason I chose a simple sans-serif font, such as Helvetica, for the body copy is because it is more European, just like the size of the magazine itself.
The idea was to create a newspaper similar to the Miami New Times. I believe that newspapers with more images and illustrations are more attractive to readers than on the web. Also, The content is pretty interesting. I have written an article on the new idea of selling gourmet food on food truck. It is similar idea to the food cart idea, except experienced culinary chefs produce higher quality food for you to enjoy. Hope you like my newspaper design! =)
For this assignment I redesigned a page from System of a Down's Toxicity Album. The original page featured a collage of the members of the band. The redesign features an illustration I did of a gas mask. The reverse type was used in the original design, as well as the number of columns and the length of each paragraph. The point of this exercise was to work with small type.
