Here is my first attempt at using In-design in which I was trying to copy the image on the left of a magazine front cover, my version is on the right. It went… better than expected. that is to say it could have been worse. Though certainly not perfect by any means as a first attempt i’m pleasantly surprised.
My placing of the images and text for example could obviously be better but is still fairly accurate despite a clear issue with sizing, everything is near enough in the right place and the right layer which proved to be harder than expected.
Some other weaknesses are that;
- My background could look better.
- The images look stretched.
- My writing could look more similar.
- And most embarrassing of all I’ve straight up forgotten to put a bar code on it.
But one must live and learn and I do have a much better understanding of the website and how i’ll come about making my own cover when the time comes.
Below is a playlist that has and will continue to help me use In-design more effectively to get the best turn out I can muster up.
