I want my magazine layout to be legible, but mostly readable. I would like it to attract readers by using a striking photo of my subject, and then have the text legible and simply placed surrounding it. Here are examples of what I am imagining.
The story covering the comeback of the chubby cuppycake boy will be published in “The Skinny”. “The Skinny” is a magazine aptly titled for its intel into the lives of celebrities of any caliber. This magazine is similar to publications like “TMZ” and “The Star”.
This two-spread feature story will cover The Chubby Cupcake Boy’s comeback to music. He has been on a steady low-fat diet and attending singing lessons for the last 8 years. He describes his singing style as of the likes of Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Tony Bennett.
I am choosing the “Entertainment Magazine” theme. I must design a two-spread feature story that covers a person’s comeback to music, TV or film. I will answer the prompts “What happened to him/her,” “Where has he/she been,” and “Is he/she here to stay”.
