Little Ink was a design magazine developed for a group project as part of typographical studies – including typesetting and layouts.
Week 1: Inspiration and Initial Concepts
Week 2: Typeface Research and Finalising Articles
Week 3: Initial Designs
As a group we created a grid that was to be used across our whole magazine, in addition to developing paragraph styles and colour schemes which we would all adhere to in order to create a cohesive magazine.
When brainstorming what to do for the cover of “Little Ink” magazine, we all had different unique concepts which ultimately led to the final design. The following images are ideas and experimentation that I did. Trying to find a way to link the magazine cover with the actual contents of the magazine, I was inspired to develop the hand illustration (as created by Imogen) into the style of Miso, one of the feature designers in the magazine. Ultimately, there was too much going on, however it lead to the final cover which was the hand with a tattoo in the style of Miso’s tattoos illustrated on the wrist.
Week 4: Finalising Designs
The following images are the final designs for my pages of the magazine.
