Objectives: • Design: o A Cover page, & o 1 feature story page in a magazine • Demonstrate an understanding of the parts of a magazine layout • Choose/create an image that supports the content of the story and the style of the magazine and prepares your image correctly. • Display mastery of InDesign (including the use of a grid, professional typography, packaging the final document) and some basic skills in PS. • Explore principles of design including hierarchy, white space, alignment, contrast, proximity, scale and repetition Assignment: a) First Design a cover page of the magazine for your client (your group will choose the same name of your magazine but do the designs on your own).
