The key element of the zine is the article, without an article it’s pretty difficult to work out the design of the poster and cover.
My first draft of the article was a basic layout of two columns with the heading at the top of the page and an image of Pushkin’s edition of Vertigo. This first draft was more to work out how much of the page my article takes up rather than focus on the design. Once I had the article in place I could then alter the design and layout.
I kept the two column design but included a pull quote and made the opening paragraph bold in comparison with the rest of the body. Rather than using one large photo across the bottom of the article using two smaller images helped to break up the text. I think all these elements helped to create a clean, easy to read spread.
