We have been given sessions on Illustrator, Indesign and Photoshop. Our lectures where about some issues within the fashion industry and individually we had to come up with a subject we were passionate about and write an essay about it. I have Chosen to do mine on skin bleaching and cosmetic surgery. This would be in the magazine in an article format.
Our group was inspired by magazines like ID, Dazed and Vice. For the font I had an idea of the Dymo and typewriter font as it would look grungy and authentic. The title I suggested the idea blurred as we we're talking about issue that aren't really seen in the media. Looking through Flickr for a front cover I came across Louis Lander photos and thought that it really related to our style, I mailed him for consent and he was happy for it to be used as our front cover.
Working in a group is always difficult, I was really challenged in this project but i was happy with the outcome of the magazine and definitely did all I could.
