I have now begun planning my layout for the double page magazine. I started by simply drawing 4 simple sketches of possible layouts i might like to use inspired by things i saw in Pinterest.
These are a couple of examples of things i have used for inspiration.
I began my idea generation buy simply taking inspiration from existing designs and creating very simple sketches representing the positioning and sizes of the main features of the magazine page (title, image, text).
I decided to go with the idea in the top left. I chose this one because I believe it will lead the eye round the page well and puts emphasis on the text and image.
