The layout is a combination of both an objective and subjective approach to a magazine layout. If you are familiar with the publication, it tends to be more subjective which led to a lot of fun with this piece.
All photos were taken by myself on the campus of Michigan State University.
COVER: This cover really influenced the rest of the design. I had another design already made. Then i stumbled upon this cover and liked it so much, i tailored the rest of the design around it.
The cover sets up both a horizontal and vertical grid the is present throughout the whole publication. The typography used features many type faces which is also present through our the design. The main component of the spread are the black and white photos. They all having a similar feel; modern but yet still very raw. The color scheme features black, white, magenta (C=0, M=100, Y=0, K=0), and a light orange (C=2, M=61, Y=70, K=0) as an accent color.
The publication dimensions 9.25" by 11" according to the Metropolis Media Kit 2010.
The spreads all contain running heads as well as folios on the outside of the pages at the bottom.
The other photo is a very understated picture of the glass the is a main component to the building.
