As said in the previous blog I am going to be adding better quality photos and also some of the page content like the page numbers. I will be choosing fonts and will be sharing with you what my thoughts are throughout the process.
So here is one of my chosen photos for my DPS, I chose this as that the quality was just fantastic, also there was a good balance of colours and worked out to be really easy to work with fonts and other colours.
I then thought to put a gradient on the image to make it look as if it is fading out of the page in to the sky of the photo.
I first of all went with this idea to display my text with a nice gradient white box with a slim border.
I also chose this picture because of the colours and having in mind that the text may fit nicely up in the top area of both pages. I’m not too convinced on this page and I think that both the double page spreads should be within the same sort of layout design.
I also added the page numbers and how I’d lay that out. I took the same layout from the Creative Review series as that it looked clean and simple and doesn’t stand out so much to distract the viewer.
Below is the character options I was working from.
As I mentioned that I wasn’t too keen on the recent photo I will be going back to choosing a different one and look at a different layout style.
