Dear Green Place
- Designer Heidi Kenyon
For this project we were asked to design a sixteen-page article based on Glasgow & its attractions, namely Bellahouston Park & House for an Art Lover, with a special feature of Peter Capaldi. For the contexts page I wanted to create a bold contrast and maintain the bright colours I had used in some of the digital work I had created which was getting showcased throughout the magazine. I feel that this worked well as it was structures and simple, allowing it be easily legible whilst creating impact. The single page was one of the works I had created for my digital project – for the type I wanted to keep it simple to allow the work to really speak for itself. I allowed myself to be a bit more creative with the peter Capaldi spread, taking inspiration from his time as The Doctor – this presented itself in term of font choice & colour palette. I kept the type to one page t allow the image of him to stand out – I also included some waves to create a more ‘zany’ and out of this world feel, and draw the reader in to him.
