Basic Elements
& Concepts

Magazine Layout Design
White Space
This can be done with size, weight and proportions.
The point of type is to be read!
Fonts To Avoid:
Some fonts are overused. When these are used it seems like the designer is just being lazy. Beware of crazy fonts!

- White space is the space that is not filled by any objects.

- White space helps to create a clean look.

- Your text should not be up against the page sides or other elements.
- It is important that your eye flows nicely through the layout. The eye should not bounce around.
