Here are the pictures I decided to try to use. All my own photography.
The typeface I used for the main title I found in my research and I absolutely love it. I think it typifies the current trend for this type of typeface.
Here I am starting:
Here is my first idea using a grid.
Here I have changed the sell. I showed this to the tutor to get feedback. He suggested a few improvements which I will detail below.
Here I’m adding a gradient to the title.
Here I am learning to add the white to transparent box that will cover the picture to make the type stand out.
I tried another layout.
I tried some different pictures and compared these two spreads. I prefer the spread on the right because it looks more balanced.
Here I am fixing rivers.
Evaluate – I really like this spread because I love the typeface and I like the eye-catching flower. The layout doesn’t look too busy but I expect some criticism.
Connotations – Type gradient reminds me of a sunset. This spread invokes a traditional lifestyle enjoyed in the country side.
The text I used to flesh out my article is from here:
The typefaces I used are:
main title = Hera Big in 67pt
sell = Myriad Pro in 20pt
body text = Myriad Pro in 9pt
pull quote = Highway gothic wide in 14pt
