Transcript of Magazine Layout

By: Marli Kirsch & Amy Laughlin Magazine Layouts Notice how the font color does not stand out against the background. You want to avoid you using similar colored fonts on a background that has similar colors.

For example: The background of the girl is in black and white; the black, red, and white font do not stand out against the background, especially the white. A better choice for the layout/font would be to:

Use a bolder font
Have the picture on the other side under the title, and not behind the words where it becomes a distraction Bad Example! Find things that catch your eye.

Pick up some of your favorite magazines and see what you find most appealing.

Incorporate the elements you like into your magazine layout. 1. Get Inspired! 2. Fonts, Fonts, Fonts To create a professional magazine, use the three column rule.

Three columns always make your page look sleek and simple, while allowing you to incorporate photos more easily. 3. Columns You don't have to have every inch of the page covered with something. The page will become stuffy and confusing.

Experiment by adding columns, headlines, and photos while still leaving white space in between.

See what works best for you and the premise of your magazine. 4. Don't be afraid of
"white space" Cartoons aren't professional. Research has shown that people won't read an article if there is cheap, childish clip art.

Using real-life photos will be much more effective. 5. Avoid Clip Art Your fonts depend on the message(s) you want to convey to your audience.

If you decide to use multiple fonts, make sure they complement each other. Too many fonts can confuse the reader.

Stay away from ALL CAPS. Consider using a bold font to emphasize your bigger points. If you find it difficult to read, odds are other people will too. 6. Colors Try taking colors from the images you want to include and use those colors for your fonts (i.e. the heading or sub-heading).

It is recommended to use a limited amount of colors and should be in the same family. Great Example! This example incorporates a color from the image in the typography. This allows for:
1. fluidity
2. unity

Her pink lips match the pink font on the bottom left.

Gray, black, and white are included both on the model as well as in the background and text of the layout. Bad Example! There is way too much white space here. In addition to this, the spacing is off. Your eyes aren't quite sure what to read first. Great Example! This use of white space works because the lines and swirls from the word 'homes' flow you to the image on the right.
It takes up almost the entirely of the page, while still leaving just the right amount of white space.
There isn't too much information packed onto the page. 1. http://www.magazinepublisher.com/designtips.html

•Don’t use Comic Sans just because your topic is humorous. (Better yet, don’t use Comic Sans at all)

•Don’t use Lithos just because your topic is about Greek restaurants.

•Don’t use Futura just because your topic deals with “the future”. http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2011/03/24/how-to-choose-a-typeface/ http://www.dafont.com/
