Voordat ik begon aan het maken van mijn magazine, ben ik gaan nadenken over welk thema ik wilde gebruiken. Uiteindelijk heb ik gekozen voor ‘Games’. Ik heb hiervoor gekozen, omdat games mijn interesse genieten en ik er van overtuigd was dat ik bij dit thema het best een magazine kon maken. Allereerst heb ik inspiratie opgedaan op het Internet en heb ik in verscheidene game-magazines gekeken. Lettertype.

Het lettertype dat ik heb gekozen voor mijn magazine, is Berlin Sans FB. In eerste instantie had ik het lettertype op standaard (Minion Pro) staan. Ik vond dit echter een saai en levenloos lettertype, dus het was tijd voor verandering. Ik wilde Andalus gebruiken, omdat ik die ook voor mijn Vormgevingboekje van Vormgevingtheorie heb gebruikt. Dat lettertype bestond echter niet in InDesign, dus ik moest iets anders verzinnen. Ik ben gewoon de lijst afgegaan, op zoek naar iets leuks. Ik heb gedacht aan Verdana, Cambria en Calibri, maar die vond ik allemaal te standaard. Toen kwam ik bij Berlin Sans FB. Dit is een lettertype dat ik nog niet eerder had gezien. Ik vind het een vrij zakelijk, maar toch speels lettertype. De reden dat ik uiteindelijk voor Berlin Sans FB heb gekozen, is dat gamers en mensen die game-magazines lezen vaak een beetje speels zijn (dit baseer ik op mezelf en op wat ik in mijn omgeving zie).

Op een Playstation controller zit een knopje met een driehoek er op. Deze driehoek is waar mijn beeldmerk op is gebaseerd.

Op de afbeelding hierboven is die driehoek te zien. Ik heb de ‘A’ in ‘Gamezone’ vervangen door die driehoek. Voor gamers en gamekenners zou dit erg henkenbaar moeten zijn. Ik heb dus geprobeerd mijn logo een beetje herkenbaar te maken, door invloeden van Nintendo en Playstation er in te verwerken.

Logo.

Het logo van mijn magazine heb ik gebaseerd op het logo van Nintendo en op een Playstation controller. Het Nintendo logo zie je rechts. Het is een rood met wit logo, met het woord Nintendo in een cilinder. Vrij simpel.

Huisstijl.

Er zijn een aantal dingen die standaard terugkomen in mijn magazine. Zo heb ik opzettelijk gekozen voor een rode rand aan de bovenkant van elke rechterpagina, omdat in mijn beeldmerk het rechterdeel ook een rode achtergrond heeft. Het linkerdeel heeft een witte achtergrond, dus daarom hebben de letters bovenaan de linkerpagina steeds een witte achtergrond. 3


T

he original Super Mario Bros. for the NES is something of a Rosetta Stone for adventure games, informing virtually everything that followed it. It’s a simple tale of an underdog hero overcoming impossible odds to rescue a damsel in distress from an evil monster. Pretty simple, right? Wrong. It’s a tale of corruption, genocide, greed, and overflowing sewage. And Mario’s the bad guy. These are the horrible truths about Super Mario Bros. Let’s say you’re a Goomba – you don’t exactly have the best life: you’re short, you’re weak, anyone who touches you dies, and you’re named after an ethnic slur. Luckily, all you want to do with your time is peacefully walk across the world. You never target anyone, you mean no harm to a single soul – you’re actually a peaceful, benevolent creature (who happens to look like the kingdom’s primary food source). Hell, you don’t even have any arms.

1. MARIO KILLS COUNTLESS ENEMIES WHO AREN’T EVEN TRYING TO HURT HIM. Suddenly – you get smashed. You’re dead. Wha – What? Why? Who? Well, confused dead Goomba – an Italian plumber just crushed you to death for no goddamn reason. He jumped on your skull, and flattened you because he felt like it. You were

never trying to do anything to him, but because you dared to walk in his general direction, he ended your existence.

3. MARIO IS BANKRUPTING AN ENTIRE COMPANY.

Mario is a violent nutjob. Very few of the enemies in Super Mario Bros. are actually trying to kill him. Sure, there’s the Piranha Plants, the Thwomps, and maybe even the Hammer Bros., but the vast majority of the enemies Mario kills are just out for a walk: Koopas, Goombas, even Bullet Bills are essentially innocent creatures that can’t control when or how they’re launched. So why does Mario do this?

We’ve established Mario’s looking for an easy buck and doesn’t give a damn who he screws over, and also he’s got a hell of an in with the royals that makes him virtually bulletproof. So what more could he do to ruin this poor kingdom? Oh, I dunno, maybe ROB IT BLIND? Why the entire wealth of the nation is jammed in bricks and floating around creepy dungeons is unknown. Maybe Koopa tried to hide some of it in bricks, assuming no one would be crazy enough to go around punching them all. Maybe some of them were left in the castles because the Toadstool family were like Scrooge McDuck and liked rubbing up against gold coins wherever they went. It doesn’t matter. What matters is Mario collects all of the gold for himself and shows no intention of.

2. MARIO IS A TERRIBLE, NEGLIGENT,

What do we know about Mario? Quite a lot, actually. He used to be a carpenter named Jumpman, but then changed his name to Mario and became a plumber. A shitty plumber. Maybe the worst plumber in a generation. How do we know this? Look at the world around you. There are pipes everywhere in Super Mario Bros. Giant, worthless pipes. Some go nowhere. Some have fire-spewing plants living in them. Some traverse worlds – some just go directly into the ocean. They do all sorts of things – but none of the things pipes are actually meant to do. The sewage situation in the Mushroom Kingdom has got to be an absolute nightmare.

“King” Koopa. Both of their options are an oppressive monarchy. Really – no one’s up for democracy at all. So – it shouldn’t really matter that Mario’s trying to re-instate one ruling monarchic family over another, right?

5. MARIO IS AN ISANE MURDERER AND PRINCESS TOADSTOOL COULDN´T CARE LESS. “But wait!” you argue. “There are people who support the Princess! But they were turned into brick blocks by the evil Koopa!” First off, don’t argue at your computer screen. It will not respond to you. These are pre-written words, dude. You’re weirding out everyone in the computer lab.

6. IT´S ALL A GAME TO THE HEROES.

So how did the world’s worst plumber land the biggest plumbing gig ever, given he clearly has no idea what he’s doing? Well, it sure does help that you’re dating the scion of the royal family. He probably used some cheesy line like “We both know I’m great at layin’ pipe” or something, then convinced her to let him take care of the plumbing for the entire kingdom. Now there’s a sanitation disaster that would require years of clean-up and

4. MARIO IS SUPPORTING AN EVIL MONARCHY. Let’s make this clear: there is really no good option for the Mushroom Kingdom. They’re either being ruled by the Toadstool family or by self-proclaimed 4

So – Princess Toadstool is a probably oppressive monarch who doesn’t care enough to bring any of her subjects back to life even though it’s well within her power to do so and has had some part in constructing the most horrible castles known to man and gave a sweet plumbing gig to her idiot boyfriend and ruined the sewage system for the now-bankrupt kingdom forever. That’s the starting point of why the Princess is equally messed up and evil, but here’s the rest. 5
