  1. Designing a Magazine Cover African American History Project 2015

  2. Introduction When you pass by the magazine rack at Wal-Mart, what makes you want to pick up a magazine and read it? • The cover

Objectives By the end of this lesson, you’ll be able to: • Describe at least 3 design elements that should be considered when designing for a specific audience. • Choose proper photos/clipart for the intended audience. • Choose an appropriate color scheme for a stated audience. • Design a magazine cover for a specific audience.

  6. Fonts • Don’t overuse fonts • Never use more than 4 fonts. • Readable • Size • Typeface • Use Bold and italics instead of different fonts

  8. Colors • Use a Color Scheme • Stereotypical colors work! • Gender (pink, blue, pastels, gray) • Industry standards (Cat yellow, John Deere Green) • Age groups • Country/Ethnic colors

  9. Pictures/Graphics • Catch the readers eye • Simplicity usually works best • Simple clipart – Nothing Complex • Limited subjects in pictures • Don’t over-enlarge small pictures
