After having composed the text for my talking tech article, I started sketching potential layouts for the double page spread design, taking inspiration from all the article designs I included in my previous post.
It took me a while to decide on a layout, but once I had, I sketched it out less roughly to help me visualise what the finished article would look like.
After sketching this out, I decided to just go for it and make the finished article using photoshop. It took me a while to work out how to format the text to upwards instead of horizontally, but once I had, it took me very little time to form my whole concept for the magazine. I decided to use a candid image of two people in conversation, to subtly hint to the content. Coincidentally there is a small handrail separating the two subjects, hinting at the title of the article which is “Breaking down the barrier..”
My finished article is below.
