Well, the final class has somehow crept up quicker than expected. It feels like just yesterday October started but here we are, days away from 2016.
It’s funny how things work out sometimes. Originally I was registered for a different class than the one I took but due to low registrations, I was recommended to take Magazine Design. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this class and I’ve learned a lot about the various programs you use in graphic design as well!
As expected of the title of the class, our final projects were our own personal spin on a magazine. I took some pictures of a few of the final pages, mind you I could probably keep working on this forever but this is the final result over the last few weeks!
I featured both of these pages in a few of my older posts when they were works in progress. As you can see, changes have been made as well as minor tweaks in order to tie in the magazine as one. Throughout the magazine I tried to tie in colors that were featured on the cover; blue, red, black, gold, and white. Gold being the perfect tie in to each page really made the rest of the magazine come together well.
Overall, the magazine is finished but for my own personal standards, I definitely feel I could further strengthen the magazine. I tried my best with the time and sources I had which is all that really matters in the long run I guess!
If you’re interested in designing and graphics as well as putting together a final product, I highly recommend you try Magazine Design. It not only introduces you to more aspects of design, but you’ll get a better understanding of software you’ll more than likely need in any field you go into!
Thank you all so much for reading my posts from week to week, it’s really been awesome getting to write for this blog!
Have a happy holiday and good luck with your future endeavors!
