Design Skills 2

In the creation of my magazine, I have picked up a number of design skills and production techniques.

Design Skills

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.


Production Techniques

  • 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.
