Magazine Layout – Sketches – Learning activity 1.4

“In this task, focus on the folder CURB. In this folder, there’s a bunch of elements that can be used in a magazine. Study the elements thoroughly.
You will now have to make sketch proposals  with the following pages:

* Front cover
* Two spread pages inside the magazine
* Back cover

Think dynamics and contrast in the layout of the magazine.
Make a decision as to which layout style you wish to base the layout on; symmetrical, asymmetrical or a mix between the both.
Explain your choice of layout style.”

Here’s my sketches:

Contrast will appear more in the final product.
