This week we familiarised ourselves with the layout and structure of magazines & newspaper by creating a flatplan of them.
I did flatplans of 2 different magazines – Madame, a German edition fashion magazine and Architectural Digest so that I have the idea and comparison on how magazines of different genres differ in their structure & layout.
“Madame” has a more ‘playful’ layout, a lot of picture collages, using huge dropcap as one of the decorative element on the page. Each spread seems to have a different layout, although the overall consistency is supported by the continued use of same font style (Serif for Title & body text, Sansserif for captions, description & footers).
Architectural Digest’s layout is a lot more structured and more consistent from spread to spread. The overall look is clean, organized, made interestint with the stunning & pleasant interior images.
