Today the magazine group discussed different font and imagery options for a mock layout idea. As a kid’s history magazine, we are opting for different historical looking fonts and imagaes, such as scrolls, parchment, classic looking fonts.
We planned our front page, which will consist of a globe on the front that will navigate to a different icon every issue, along with a scroll which says “History’s Mysteries” at the top of the layout. We also discussed colours, in which we feel a more classic history related look will look much more professional than bright, neon colours many kid’s magazines have.
I also planned out a “How to make your own pirate costume” feature, in which I made a simple layout/collage or pirate costume ideas and how-to ideas.
We are planning on meeting this friday to create a mock up idea of our front page layout.
