Here I am trying out some ideas for the cover. When I started I realised that designing a cover is more difficult than I imagined. I showed these ideas to the tutor so he could advise me on the issues. All the photos in this post are from Shutterstock.
I thought I’d try the typeface I found in my post Bang On Trend Typography: London Grammar. I think it looks OK. The type covers the head.
This photo leaves big white gaps and that brought the realisation that designing a cover might be more difficult than designing a spread. The tutor said that the gaps could potentially be part of the design.
I thought I’d see if there were any other nice typefaces similar to Vow that I could try. Here is the similar fonts page. I didn’t really see anything I liked though.
The tutor said I should have a look at a book called Issues: New magazine design. The tutor also said I should probably keep the subject on ice skating since that’s the point of the piece.
