I wanted to design a photography magazine that showed off my business account Aquilah Productions and with this I created a logo in adobe illustrator using the techniques that we learnt in the early stages of this subject using the image trace tool and considering colour, shape and type to create these logos I decided to go with the first design to go on the front page.
I used photoshop to turn one of my photos into a black and white photos to then image draw in illustrator to see if a Armin Hofman type of magazine would be interesting, but unfortunately i didn’t like this design and decided to go with my original idea.
Here is the progression of these designs:
Ultimately, this was an extremely enjoyable project and I feel that throughout the course of this design project I have learnt a lot. I have improved upon my technical skills, most notably with Indesign and Photoshop. I have also learnt a lot about the design process, how there are many steps and often it is not linear, so you may have to revisit earlier steps for reworking as your project evolves. I have also learnt a lot about design layout and hierarchy.
