Magazine Spread Draft Critique


The first step for my Magazine Project Spead was to create a story, then sketch out possible layouts, and create a shape map.   This was helpful because I was able to draft different ideas that I felt would enhance the story I wanted to share. I brought my sketch to life by creating a shape map in Adobe Indesign.  The black areas are where my images will be placed and the placeholder text is where my text will go. I added notes for my fonts and color scheme.  Once the shape map was created I was able to easily go in and place the elements into my shape map to bring my magazine spread to life.  Here is my final project so far.
