My Magazine Front Page Swede

Today in class we had to choose one of the various professional NME Music Magazine’s and then use Adobe Indesign to try and create an identical version by finding all the correct fonts and images to match the Professional Magazine.

Joe Strummer Magazine –

My version of the magazine –

Creating my version of the Joe Strummer Magazine was a very useful task as it really helped me understand how Indesign works and to use many features of the software for example:

  • Text Stroke
  • Effects (Drop Shadow)
  • Placing Images In
  • Adding shapes in e.g Circles

All these things I’ve learnt from creating my version of the magazine will really help advance my skills when creating my own music magazine and also doing this has also enabled me to understand the software much better therefore I will be more experienced when creating my own.
