Assignment 29624

I attached an example. you have to Mimic the style; approach it like you are designing the next issue for the Vouge example I attached. So design a cover, two spread articles, and attach a word document, identify and discuss in around 300 words. What elements of the 10 Rules of Design are present in your composition? Explain 3 of them and Why is your design working?
Check other issues online so you have a better idea of the feel and look. Start analyzing its cover and then the featured article (you have a couple of spreads in the magazine samples provided). Pay close attention to the margins, columns, typography, and the way they set up the article, create hierarchy, and use images. Plan your design using thumbnails on paper; do not jump into the computer right away. Think first, act later. Collect the copy, images, and graphics before you start with InDesign.
Pages: 5 (cover spread spread) 1spread=2 facing pagesCopy: You must have headlines, subheads, credits, image captions, folio (page numbers), pull quote, and body copy. All should be real English, no lorem ipsum! Find an article online that you can use or use one report from another class. Use hierarchy in color and size to enhance the look.Images: Your spreads must-have images, and graphics! Use at least 5 images and 1 graphic (other than the logo). A graphic can be an illustrated cover (Times does it really often) or an illustrated title (Vogue does it really often); it must be a vector file (.ai or .eps)Absolutely no Kardashians, Jenners, or related. Use famous people but not celebrities that are famous for being famous. You can use designers, musicians, singers, actors, activists, models, politicians… Design: You need to design these pages based on all the design principles we covered throughout the semester.
Bleeds are always 0.125″
Be sure your margins are consistent. They should be equal to or more than 0.125″. A good size is 1″ top, 0.5″ sides and bottom. The more margin on the top the more elegant it will look.
Work with a grid (columns), it will help with alignment, flow, and balance.
Depending on the nature of your publication (consumer or trade publication), your cover will have more or less caption. In your research, you might have noticed the differences between popular consumer magazines, and trade magazines – not to be confused with a lookbook, a flyer, or a book.
Covers work like posters, they should grab attention. Two-spreads articles usually have the 1st spread more “designed” and the 2nd spread more explicative and text-heavy. The first page should lure you into reading the article.
Avoid spelling and grammar mistakes. Review carefully.
Review the four Fs: format, function, frame, and formula.
