A new assignment has been handed out and this one is a big one! We have been asked to design a front cover and two page spread for Creative Review. But not just any topic will do in this scenario, I will have to choose a specific subculture that has died out and try to bring back to life with good advertisement skills and page layout skills.

A subculture is a cultural group within a large mainstream culture, often having beliefs or interests at variance with those of the larger culture. Usually subcultures can form into a mainstream culture, thus happens when the media and the real world accept them for who they are. Although the press do a real good job at making a lot of subcultures look extremely bad and as a threat to society by making false statements which in fact turned against them as more people want to join the cultures due to how crazy it sounds.

There are loads of subcultures out there that branch off of many main cultures, heres a small list of a few I’ve found which I am interested in:

  • Hippie
  • Zoot Suiters
  • Ravers
  • Steam punk
  • Emo
  • Skinhead
  • Rockers
  • Teddy Boys

I think that this assignment will be again challenging but i think ill enjoy it and gain a lot of experience on certain applications such as Adobe InDesign on how to present my pages.
