The theme for my magazine will be NYC, there will be a collection of cityscapes and architecture photography.
Although very basic the above magazine shows contemporary style using a sans serif typeface and minimalist text therefore tying into my magazine style. However the imagery used is very dark and creates a negative effect. The magazine layout is simple, using negative space to draw the viewer into the imagery.
This magazine has a more professional layout, using overlapping text and imagery creates a 3D effect and is often seen within professional magazines. I will be using this technique to produce my front cover. The colours used are bright and work in contrast with one another. This adds a design spec that attracts attention to the font however combining the imagery. The title and text is all in bold therefore providing an instant response.
This front cover uses simplicity to focus on the imagery. Darken the edges of the image crates a base to overlay text and I think its very powerful.
