As I have said before I wanted to stick to the following guidelines when creating my layout.
- ‘How to’ navigation page to show audience how to interact with the articles.
- Images that take up large sections of the screen and are a focus of the page.
- Two columns of text on each page to show uniformity and seriousness and formality of subject matter.
- Drop caps and pull quotes that match the colours of the photographs and illustrations on the article.
I have created my layout in Adobe InDesign to these specifications and I am very happy with the results.
As you can see I have stuck to my specifications throughout the magazine, two columns of text, full page images, pull quotes that match the colour of the images or illustrations in the article. Here is the full layout including front cover.
