NERVE MAGAZINE HOUSE STYLE 2012/13


DESIGN GUIDELINES InDesign Set up

When setting up a InDesign document, it should look like thisSave it as a preset to keep it simple.

Width = 170mm Height = 240mm Columns = 7 Gutter = 4.233 Margins = 8

Photos / Illustrations Photos need have a resolution of at least 300dpi if they are to be fit to print. To do this, open a photo in Photoshop, click on IMAGE, image size and change the resolution to 300. Make sure ‘resample image’ isn’t checked.

Avoid stock imagery and Google Images where possible. If it’s unavoidable, ensure images from Google are the highest possible resolution. Try Compfight and comms. wikipedia.org. for a source of copyright free images.

Improving the resolution using this method will make the photo smaller in scale, so ensure you have massive photo files to use (1000x1000 / 2MB+ etc)!

If you’re interviewing someone, try to source images directly from them or their PR agencies. Images gained this way are usually very high resolution and will avoid any legal problems.

Save the photo as a Photoshop file and place directly into the layout. Don’t save as a jpeg as that compresses the photo. A psd. file is the highest quality. Make sure to accredit photos where necessary. This can be done in small font either withing the photo or beside it. Make sure it doesn’t intrude on the layout though. Where possible, try to source original photography. We have a photo editor who will be able to help out with this.

Fonts and Paragraph Style To the right are the fonts we will use. Avant Garde - For headlines (bold) and subheadings (extra light) with possible writers name (medium). Bebas Neue - For pull quotes. Large quotation marks recommended, around 60pt. (see examples in designs) Karla - Used for body font. Default size is 8 with leading at 9.6pt and tracking set to 0. but if necessary can go down to 7 and up to 9. 10+ on print is too large. To set up the baseline grid, go to Edit, preferences, general and set it up like the image on the right. Make sure the baseline grid is on all for articles, the only exception being for more off the wal layouts, such as ‘Greatest Cartoon (p19) or the recipe (p10). On the paragraph box (right) align to baseline grid (bottom right), and set line breaks to 2mm. Do not just double tap enter for a new paragraph, using this setting you only press enter once. Turn the baseline grid off for headings/ sub headings. Fonts larger than 8pt will not work within it. Pages are set up with 7 columns, so make sure to stick to them where possible. It will contribute to the overall consistency of the house style. Alignment is generally left and and paragraphs should not be indented. NERVE 02

Nerve Magazine now has a small team of illustrators on board, meaning if you require an illustration for a piece, this is available. They will need to be commissioned well in advance so pass them on to Toby at the earliest possible date each month. This is a new feature for Nerve, so if it is taken full advantage of it will work fantastically! They will work especially well on opinion pieces and leading features.

General Tips whole layout, it will really show. - When designing a layout keep EVERYTHING in one folder (pictures, fonts and text etc). It makes it a ton easier to have everything in one place, as well as simpler to correct mistakes. - For headlines on features, it is perfectly acceptable and even encouraged to choose a unique, original font for that piece. Just keep in mind the overall style of the magazine and make sure it it’s appropriate for that article. For examples see Labrinth (p28), 3D Art (p6) and Greatest Cartoon (p19) features. If you can’t find one, go with the Avant Garde bold, it will keep up consistency. - For regular features, try to stick to Avant Garde and maintain a template layout each month. The Reviews (p36) and Comment pieces are examples of this. - It is recommended to have a text wrap around everything on the spread, if only for a reference point for margins etc. To avoid the text wrap disturbing layouts, right click the object, go to text frame options and tick ignore text wrap. This should help give a nice symmetry to your layouts! - Most text wrap is between 2-4mm with a few stylistic exceptions. Make sure to keep a consistent text wrap in the

- To text wrap around an image’s edges, click the image, go to Object on the top panel, clipping path, options, detect edges and set the parameters. - To text wrap around an object or person within an image (see Tijana Tamburic p25), cut around the shape in Photoshop to remove the background, place back in layout, line it up with the full image, follow the above steps and then right click, arrange, send to back. - Group content together! By selecting numerous items and pressing CTRL+G, you can keep everything is easily managable bundles. - Articles need to be tagged with with the appropriate section banner. They may not be needed for every page (recipes p10). Make sure they are in the default position by copying from this guide and pasting in place. - When submitting layouts, export the InDesign file in indl. format and send over with everything in seperate folders for each layout. This makes it easier to make tweaks to layouts etc. Send layouts as PDFs as well.

signed to halt creativity and ambition within your designs, it is just the groundwork on which to base your layouts. - For main feature articles, make sure to supply a small accompanying photo in the folder you submit for use in the contents page (p5) - Make sure to give name and photo credits to article, incluidng illustrations. It may be appropriate to put a name credit in the sub heading (see p11, 22 etc. - Make sure to reference this guide if necessary when designing in order to maintain consistentsy, Feel free to copy over whatever you need to for structual purposes (pull quotes, text boxes etc), it may help with layouts. - A big plan for Nerve this year is to make it more accessible. This means big leading photos, interactive content and really interesting articles. Use the space you have well, and make every issue amazing!

Paul Di Resta Sport

Onwards and Upwards Britains latest prodigy says consistency and scoring regular points is the key to a second successful season in Formula 1 Words by Alex Hocking Last year Paul di Resta was amongst a new wave of young guns to debut in Formula 1 with the 26-year-old Sahara Force India driver faring best of the rookies to finish 13th in the drivers’ standings. His strong performances in 2011 led former grand prix winner and fellow Scot David Coulthard to suggest Di Resta is the next big thing in Formula 1. "Fortunately for me, it was a positive first season with Force India," says Di Resta. "We had the best finish in the constructors’ championship – sixth – and it was good to play a part in it." I guess that’s one of the reasons the team retained me for the 2012 season. It will be great to be part of this team as it grows. The investment by Sahara has given us a lift and now we can look forward to challenge the top teams in the future." The sport never stops and the rate of development by the teams to prepare their new cars is relentless. The same goes for the drivers physical and mental approach to a new season, more so for Di Resta as he aims to prove that last year’s strong showing wasn’t a one-off. He says: "I think all we can say is that we got through all our objectives in winter and we are going into the season well-prepared. Any season is important. This is obviously the bigger one to make an impression. I’m not going to put any added pressure on myself. My focus will be to do things the best way I can. The target is to be consistent and score points regularly."

NERVE 16

Although there are 24 drivers on the grid in 2012, the one man Di Resta must beat first and foremost is his new-for-2012 team mate Nico Hulenberg. "There is no No 1 or No 2 status as such, but I’m the most experienced driver in the team," Di Resta adds. "Nico and I have worked well together. We are good friends. We understand each other well and we look forward to the season. We have a young driver line-up that everybody will keep an eye on. We are certainly up for the challenge of representing Force India and the team is providing us the much-needed assistance to keep going." And keep going they must if the Silverstonebased Indian team is to close the gap to the leading pack of teams. Championships are won over the course of a season and the off-track race to develop the car is just as important as the ontrack racing. "Come four-five races into the season you will see some interesting stuff coming into the car. Whether other teams are doing it at the same time, I can’t tell. But yes they will be up to something because I’m sure they won’t be sleeping." "It’s a big ask to beat the likes of Red Bull, McLaren and Ferrari as they are world championship winning teams. It will take a mammoth task for us to reach that level. We punched above our weight last season and it will be a big ask to maintain that position this season as well."

This Season is the bigger one to make an impression

America’s super data facility is just a stepping stone to a surveillance web.

The Utah Data Centre, currently being built by the National Security Agency (NSA) in America is one magnificent beast. Or maybe magnificent is the wrong word. Try Unprecedented? Crucial? Or maybe just downright frightening? Author James Bamford cites the facility as transforming the NSA into the "largest, most covert and potentially most intrusive intelligence agency ever created." And he might not be too far-gone. Its purpose is designed to be a primary storage facility capable of intercepting, deciphering, analysing and storing every single form of mass communication on the planet. That includes the ability to simultaneously monitor every email, text, tweet, phone call and Google search of each human being. Scary stuff, but the NSA maintains the facility’s fundamental target is to provide technical assistance to the Department of Homeland Security in order to "combat cyber threats". But without much imagination, it’s easy to see why it was quickly dubbed the "spy centre" by its critiques and onlookers. Funded by the tens of billions of dollars available to the NSA in the post 9/11 War on Terror, the centre, which once completed will be the size of 140 football pitches, is worth upwards of £1.25 billion and is set to be operational in late of next year. The scale of the centre is unprecedented, and sources estimate it will be able to store data in the yottabytes, a unit so large a bigger magnitude it yet to be coined. That’s 1 septillion bytes, or in layman’s terms - 1,0 00,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 gigabytes of storage. The problem, besides the impossibility of keeping any part of your life hidden from investigation, is that the facility is not only capable of tracking your every move online, it is able to do it without your knowledge and more worryingly, without your consent. Now that’s fine for terrorist groups plotting for the downfall of a nation, but when it comes to texts to my mum over concerning bowel movements, it’s a step too far. Of course, people will argue the centre is only a threat to America’s enemies and if you’ve nothing to hide, you’ve nothing to fear, but Bluffdale, named after its location in Utah is just a stepping stone to a much darker reality online - the fully formed surveillance society. Sure the White House believe the centre is needed to legitimately accomplish intelligence monitoring and it therefore doesn’t pose a material threat to democratic

NERVE 20

government or privacy rights. The issue for me isn’t in the real world so much, but within the virtual one. Bluffdale is just a cog in an incessant pursuit of ‘total awareness’, which threatens the very freedom of the internet. Just months ago, the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) was so vehemently opposed, it chalked up a 7 million person strong petition and blackouts by Wikipedia, Reddit and Google (they placed a black box over its logo in protest), forcing the American government to head back to the drawing board, tails firmly between their legs. That was all in the name of preserving the internet, yet a potentially more damning action has slipped through the grapevine uncontested, and the trend that shows no signs of slowing. In the UK, there have been a number of disturbing proposals, including plans to monitor every email, phone call and text in the country, much like a miniature Bluffdale, as well as tighter censorship on Facebook and Google. There have already been numerous arrests via Twitter, and with the case of Newcastle United footballers Fabrice Muamba and Danny Simpson, who were both racially abused on the site, it is completely legitimate. It is when flippant (albeit mostly idiotic) comments are deemed criminal that the issue becomes about freedom of speech. Paul Chambers, from Doncaster was arrested back in 2010 for joking on Twitter about blowing Doncaster airport "sky high" if his flight was delayed, making him the 1st noted case of the kind. The man was banned from the airport for life and suspended by his employer for making a backhanded comment in what we perceive to be a personal, and fundamentally free virtual space. Even more baffling, a London blogger is facing jail for calling a politician a c**t on Twitter. In a democracy, especially British democracy, we value our freedom of speech, it is therefore non – negotiable that petty, tolerable comments made online cannot be criminally penalised, otherwise the internet will cease to exist as we know it. The internet may not be on the critical list just yet, as I can’t imagine the NSA are too interested in my menial tweets about Kim Kardashian anyway, but the freedom of the internet its constructors fought so hard to preserve is looking more fragile than ever before, and Bluffdale won’t help that. Now you know, don’t go airing your plans for world domination on Facebook anytime soon.

Sport After a sensational turn of events, Spring at AFC Bournemouth as been far from dull. With stadium sponsors Seward forced into administration before being bought out a month later, former assistant manager and talisman Steve Fletcher departing the club in search of first-team football as a Plymouth Argyle loanee and Bournemouth newspaper Daily Echo being banned access to the ground, it’s fair to say March was a busy time for the Cherries. That soon got worse, as player-turned-manager Lee Bradbury also left the club after 14 months in charge, leaving youth management coach Paul Groves and assistant Shaun Brooks temporarily taking up first-team duty. Assistant manager Russ Wilcox, appointed by Bradbury only this Winter, was also given leave from the club. Since then, things have settled down at AFCB. Groves’ first game in charge as caretaker manager saw them take a point away from their trip to play-off chasers Stevenage, and whilst losing a two-goal lead during the game it was at least a step in the right direction for the south-coast outfit.

Dead &

Bradburied? Lee Bradbury leaves as Paul Groves takes over at AFC Bournemouth. James Hartnett explains

The situation now seeing Paul Groves in the hot seat was largely unexpected, with Groves expressing in his first press conference for the club that the turnaround from getting a phone call to taking charge happened overnight. Cherries’ somewhat-controversial chairman Eddie Mitchell reportedly had been having disputes with ex-manager Bradbury for some time previously, with his wish for the youth team partnership of Groves and Brooks to assist first-team coaching being refused by a reluctant Bradbury, and possibly hints as to reason for his departure with the club after they picked up just eight points in the eleven games leading to his dismissal. Groves explained: "Eddie [Mitchell] had mentioned numerously that me and Shaun could come and help out Lee. In regards to Lee [Bradbury] and Russ [Wilcox]’s departure, the players were obviously taken aback but they know that these things happen in football, and they’ve got jobs to do themselves and have to get on with this." Following the dismissal, Groves’ press conference took place within the consequent hours, and he highlighted how quick things had changed: "I haven’t spoken to Lee since the decision, and

right now my focus has been on preparing for the upcoming games." In regard to his future as AFC Bournemouth manager, Groves was understandably hesitant: "We’ve taken on the job until the end of the season and obviously from there on whatever happens, happens. I need to make sure that I’m 100% focused on the job at hand with the events happening so fast. Management has been something that I’ve experienced [at Portsmouth and Grimsby] and been part of a coaching set-up before so we’ll just see how things develop. We’ve only got a few games left and we need to put one or two wins on the board." Criticism of the club’s condition has been known to surface, with chairman Eddie Mitchell tied up in several controversial events– including a postgame rant to fans earlier this season – but Groves feels this is natural for any club: "I think stability is something every club strives for. It’s the nature of the job that sometimes things don’t go to plan and people have to adjust. The chairman’s given us the job until the end of the season so we’ve got to go on and be professional from this and do what we do best." Having coached the youth team at AFC Bournemouth, Groves believes the challenge now is the step up in competition: "My opportunities to watch the first team have been somewhat limited during my job coaching the youth side, and forming my own opinions of the players as I see them train on a daily basis is something we’ll do as time progresses. It’s always going to be difficult to pick up any club at any level to a degree to make sure that you prepare them in the best way you can, but it’s a challenge that we look forward to." Groves was quick to add that, like any footballer will agree, winning is at the top of his agenda, and after taking charge at AFC Bournemouth he hopes his rein will be one of prosperity and triumph – however long this may be for: "We have to see how things develop and not look to far beyond where we are at this moment in time. I think you put yourself under pressure trying to be success, to win – be it in a youth set up or a first-team environment – and our hunger to compete and to win won’t change." NERVE 23

Student. Model. Natalie Glaze talks to the Select starlet on how to juggle the two.

You’d be surprised when you go to castings to see how casually most girls come! My agency generally don’t say anything about weight, they pay for hair cuts and take you shopping for new outfits but thats about it. BUT when fashion week rolls around it’s a different ball game- if you want to do Milan Paris or New York shows you have to be a certain size, that’s just a fact because the sample that you wear on the catwalk there is only one of.

When did you first start modelling and what would you say the highlight of your modelling career has been so far? I was scouted when I had just turned 15, dancing at a local rock concert, I was going crazy to my friend’s unknown band and a booker from Select happened to be there as well, the first thing she asked was "how tall are you?" The highlight so far has been working with an Italian magazine called Giogia, because they do beautiful fashion stories and have flown me out to Paris, the Canary Islands and the Maldives to shoot them!

What about your health? Of course you are expected to eat well and exercise like everyone else, but I am a very bad example. I haven’t exercised in years, but I wouldn’t suggest that because now I have a heart condition! And as for eating, well, I went to a casting that was running over lunch time yesterday and i brought a huge mc donalds into a waiting room full of models.

How do you juggle your modelling career and your university assignments/ deadlines? It is very difficult, you have to be a very structured person, you can’t be whimsical and all over the place. I always put my university work first, but doing History means I only have between 8-12 hours a week of contact, the rest of it is private study and reading. There have been times where I have to miss lectures for important shoots but as soon as I’m back I catch up and I aim to have all my coursework done at least a week before the deadline because I never known when I might be called to do a big job!

I Have yet to meet a dumb model

Do you ever feel that people jump to the conclusion that you are not intelligent because you are a model? People jump to all kinds of conclusions, this is why when I meet people and they ask me what I do I say I’m a student (because that does come first). Then if I do end up talking about work they assume im a high-roller that gets given loads of free clothes and all my shoots are glamourous. This may be the case for Kim Kardashian, but not for me. People do tend to assume that models as a collective aren’t very smart and I can’t lie that the work I do is hardly intellectually straining, but as soon as they meet most of us we dispel those rumours very quickly. I have yet to meet a ‘dumb’ model. There must be a lot of pressure on models to look good at all times. How would you describe your beauty regime?

NERVE 32

How would you sum up your everyday style? I’m not really one of those people that obsesses over style, I don’t like to box myself and I don’t like to follow trends, I hate impractical clothes. I almost always wear a shirt, usually my mums, grand mothers or even great granddads, with a blazer, comfortable Jeans (I’m loving my new ACNE high waisted ones) and trainers or old boots. If I go out I will dress up but always dress an outfit down with minimal makeup and and flat boots, primarily because i’m too tall to wear heels!

Have you got any fashion and beauty tips for your fellow university students? I tend to stress out a lot and this leads to break-outs on my face, to it is important to cleanse every day because we get a lot of dirt trapped in out pours. I bite my nails like crazy before exams to try to cut them down to a small size and get cuticle oil. From rushing around, sweating and stressing I sometimes get a mild form of acne on my arms and a rash on my back, so my biggest tip it to always wear cotton as the layer closest to your skin. It might be cool to wear a synthetic top but I find my skin doesn’t like it if I am active all day. I wear cotton vests and try to find 100% cotton t-shirts. Layers are key for people rushing around uni, especially in this country where weather fluctuates like crazy!

Not content with just causing Earthquakes, Labrinth is hell bent on world domination. Toby Gray asks what he plans to do with all that power.

ADVERT

For a man with the world at his fingertips, the question of his dream collaboration tells you all you need to know about Labrinth’s attitude towards music. "My dream would be to work with my family. All of them are musicians so I want to work with them one day and make an album with all 9 of my brothers and sisters." Naturally the topic of the band name came up and McKenzie, aged 23 instantly replied, "When we were younger we were called Mac 9."

It’s clear it’s all about the music for Labrinth, and it always has been. Growing up in Hackney, East London alongside an incredibly musical family, he started producing at just 15, spending months at a time in the studio introducing himself to the art of production. "I just wanted to make music. I’ve always been like that and I don’t care where I go or how much success I have, if I don’t make music it literally kills me. I feel like I’m gonna die." NERVE 37


Labrinth signed for Simon Cowell’s label Syco in 2010 after the initial invite as a producer expanded into a full record offer, despite McKenzie already in the midst of signing with Universal Island Records. "They said ‘well you’re not signed yet, so what’s going on?’ so we decided to let them put a bid in. For me personally I felt, ‘why not go with Syco because you’ll be the only urban act in there. Not just urban, you’ll be the only fully musical person in that label. " For Labrinth then, it’s less about the profile of the label and more about the treatment he receives for being such a unique import. "I’d rather be in a place where they’re gonna give me special attention, than be in the same place as everybody else where they just have black/urban artists getting signed."

tations of Labrinth from what he’s already achieved to the exclusivity of his record deal are unavoidable. But as a man with a clear vision, he maintains he feels no pressure at Syco because he’s the type of person that is never happy. "People are like "you’re smashing it around the world" and I’m like "I don’t care". I haven’t made what I want to make yet and that’s the kind of artist I am," he explains. "I’m not thinking about the success I’ve had, I’m thinking about the success I want to have. "But as a man always pushing for higher, Labrinth admits "I feel like I’m my own worst enemy sometimes in terms how I move forward. I won’t lie that I appreciate what I’ve done so far and I’m not overlooking that, but at the same time I know where my ambitions lie."

If I don’t make music it literally kills me. I feel like I’m gonna die

This decision to turn down an offer from Universal Island came to a shock to a lot of people around Labrinth, as they lay claim to some of the most successful urban acts on the circuit today. According to McKenzie, "it was definitely the oddest place to go because all the people round me at the time were saying; ‘are you serious? Does this make sense?’"

But the choice has definitely paid off and Labrinth describes his progress as "healthy", with four top five records and debut album Electronic Earth peaking at number two in the first week. The difference that separates him apart from the crowd however, and what attracted Cowell to him is that in his own words; he’s a "one stop shop". "I think he had an urge to sign artists that had their own vision on where they wanted to go and what they wanted to do. When he saw the way I was thinking, he was like "okay, I believe in that." It wasn’t about being cradled by Cowell, but using his platform to drive his own success. Labrinth claims that when he signed the deal, "I was in control of my career and I still am."

I’m not thinking about the success I’ve had, I’m thinking about the success I want to have

His ambition is strong enough for anyone to see, confident in his own ability to be successful, as he explains "I’ve always had massive plans for myself", so much so that he never worries about the impact of Cowell’s plans will have on his career. Yet the expecNERVE 38

Despite being part of Syco, Labrinth is far from a talent show signing and doesn’t expect people to see him as such. Ironically, he even mentions in single ‘Express Yourself’ - "I don’t make the papers, I’m far from JLS // Ain’t got the X-factor, I’m not what they expect" despite writing it before he was even signed. "It’s so weird that it’s in there and I ended up signing with them! When I listened to it again there was the irony that I’m not supposed to be part of the X Factor. I don’t have what the X Factor usually wants."

The stereotype of a Cowell signing is not something he’s concerned with though and isn’t choosing to distance himself from it, because he believes his diversity is his biggest asset. "I’m a bit of a weird one to a lot of people because I can change my hat very quickly. One day I’ll be a squeaky clean pop artist and then the next day I’ll be the sickest underground artist making crazy club tunes. He adds that, "people don’t really know where to put me most of the time and I think that confuses people. It works with the name though, Labrinth!" His confidence may be taken as arrogance, but as a man who as written, produced and performed practically an entire hit album himself, he maybe afforded a pat on the back. But he admits the decision to create the whole record isn’t going to be the way forwarding the future. "Sometimes you can learn fresh things from new people and I don’t always believe on doing it all on my own. But I

felt the 1st one I should at least do."

And the album is a diverse record at that, showing the different sides to Labrinth’s style, which he describes as "a healthy intro to people understanding what I’m about, what I’ve learnt and who I was." Yet for all the alternative faces of Labrinth, his party records still dominate and for him, it’s all about having fun. "I didn’t want to be too serious because that wasn’t how I was feeling at the time. I don’t find it hard to make a well written, well constructed melody and that side of it for me is actually easier than making a party song." He insists however, "I’m not gonna be one of those artists that make the same record all the time, because I’m about music so hopefully they get that message.

One day I’ll be a squeaky clean pop artist and then the next day I’ll be the Sickest underground artist making crazy club tunes

With 2012 already a massive year for Labrinth, his plans remain solely to keep making music. "I’m gonna put more stuff out there, make more club bangers, make more beautiful, well written songs and get more strings going. I just want to keep putting myself out there and hopefully people will respect and enjoy that." Plans to hit America are building up as well. "It’s been quite hot over there. We’re being used as one of the songs for WWE. Earthquake’s getting a bit of noise out there and we got Busta Rhymes on the version we’re releasing. I’m going there to put the face to the song really." A household name already, and Labrinth isn’t finished yet, not by a long shot. With the amount of Earthquakes he’s got planned, that bomb shelter you’ve been mulling over may not be such a bad investment after all.

Emergency Room - "I actually have these 2 guys on my label and they’ve got some really crazy, fresh records that they’re putting out really soon so I can’t wait for them to come out."
