The objective was to design a magazine cover and an editorial layout for a given article. The design choices involved selecting an existing magazine where this article would likely be published. I analyzed the magazine style, repeating design graphics, and typographic/layout features. The design challenge was to match the magazines current style. I was responsible for selecting, sourcing, and editing all the visual images, design graphics, page furniture, folio elements and typographic style of the entire layout.

The layout was created in Adobe InDesign using paragraph styles, text frames, master pages, folio, and typesetting. The imagery was sourced online and required image editing in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator for cropping, masking, color, and highlights. The cover was completely redesigned using the original magazine as a guide. The Masthead, coverlines, selling line, main image, typographic styles, date and bar code had to match the original magazine.
