Finally finished all of the coursework, i’m done making all the changes to it, changing my idea completely I had to change my; initial ideas and target audiences. to make it suit my final piece. For the initial ideas instead of deleting my first one, i decided just to add to it, i thought that it was a good idea to show my original ideas.

all there is left to do now is my ancillaries and evaluation.


Screenshots of progress

Adjusting the opacity of the image in the background, as you can see I have adjusted the intensity of the image in the background, i didn’t want the image to look to bold, so it would drown out the article pull quotes out.

Adding white box behind competition text, i thought would add the box to make that piece of writing stand out. It didn’t really look that good with the background image so i adjusted it again.

By adding a faint white box behind the title was supposed to make the title stand out and make the writing look bigger, i made it faint because i don’t think that it would look right if it was completely bold.

I decided to move the the competition to the side with all the articles on. I chose to do this because i didn’t want anything to cover the Tor as that is the main attraction i want everyone to be able to see it.

Here is my progress working on the second page of my magazine, currently i am experimenting with different typography, I don’t want to use more than two different fonts, as i don’t want to make the article confusing to read. For the title i am planning on using one of my own images taken, showing the shop sign.

Tonight i have started the layout of my front cover, as you can see i have already come up with my title, and i already know what i’m going to write for my little ‘pull quote’ and other little advertisements, i was just playing around with some different fonts and seeing what looks best on the cover. This time round i have decided to use a different website/app to create this magazine cover, i decided to do this because i feel like i struggled with my last magazine cover, as i didn’t like the website i was using to create the page, so this time i chose i different one- called ‘indesign’, this app you can only use on a mac.

this week I have also started my codes and conventions and I am currently half way through that. the pages I have chosen to analyse is the cover from ‘Salisbury life’ and I have analyzed the contents page and an article page from the ‘Bath life’ magazine. I am hoping to have that finished and uploaded by the end of today so I can crack on with my historical research page.
