Preliminary exercise By Blue Copeland
College magazine research â€˘
I like this magazine because the red masthead and t-shirt compliment each other. The text is clear and easy to read/understand The magazine is focused on the picture as the background is blurred slighty
I like this magazine because the block colour in the masthead makes it stand out and the font sans serif makes it look serious. The font is familiar and makes people feel comfortable and believe what they are reading.
Exampled fonts for masthead
Masthead This is the font I decided to use for my masthead, because it was bold and easy to read. Because the name of my magazine is â€˜college fixâ€™ I added a white stroke to make the letters stand out better & warped it to make it more funky.
Font for text â€˘ St enci l St d
was the font I used for all the other text on my front cover (i.e. left third etc) â€˘ To make each section look different I changed the colour of the text and out lined each one differently.
This is the original medium close up image that I have used on my college magazine. â€˘ On the magazine I have slighty edited the picture to make the brightness darker.
