In the creation of my magazine, I have picked up a number of design skills and production techniques.
I have learned how to use the eyedropper tool in order to create a clear, aesthetically pleasing colour scheme for my magazine.
Another tool that I’ve learned to use is the drop shadow tool, which helps to enhance the titles and text throughout my magazine.
- I have learned how to lay out my work in order to fit the brief for each individual task
- I have improved on my ability to convey various moods through the texts that I create, allowing an effective representation of of emotion
What went well…
I was able to create my magazine to a good quality finish, and the skills I developed throughout this significantly improved the end result. When looking at the magazine it’s apparent that a lot of thought had been put into creating a well constructed finished product.
Even better if…
I feel that I could have planned more thoroughly for my photoshoots, as when I was with my models I didn’t have a very clear sense of direction, resulting in a not very diverse selection of shots. Also, I think that my cover could have been improved by having a background that better matched my theme, as I feel that the colour behind my model was too bright to fit with the pastels throughout the rest of my magazine.
