I had a look at magazines I could take inspiration from rather than doing artist research. I looked at ART WORLD which was a design magazine before it shut down in 2008.
The magazine was full of colour and reviews of art work. I liked the diverse styles of all the pages, all of the spreads below are very different from each other, some black and white, some full colour.
Computer Arts is by far my favourite magazine, visually. I would of chosen this magazine however the amount of illustration’s within didn’t really seem appropriate when the task was mainly for our own benefit of playing around with InDesign.
I didn’t just want to look at design magazines so I looked at fashion and other types of magazines to see if they can give me inspiration.
