MAGAZINE DESIGN

In this study project we had to design a magazine site in InDesign. Our focus laid on learning the graphical design and the technical skills for InDesign rather than the content which is why it was allowed to use filling text instead writing our own. Since I am a movie enthusiast I decided to make a site about “Beginners” since it is one of my most favourite movies. While designing I followed the guideline “less is more” and kept the color scheme to grey, white and yellow. Also the big picture on the right side is kept in black and white to follow this guideline and to keep a consistent style. By implementing a photo of the couple I wanted to immediately display the topic of the movie while the dog is representing a strong visual element of the movie due to his “talking” in the movie which is done by showing subtitles but him actually not making any sound.
