I had to come up with a concept for a magazine. The magazine had to be something that we had an interest in an a passion for. I had to create a title page, and the guts, which consisted of three articles, with quotes, pictures, and headlines.
I have a number of hobbies and interests such as guitar, photography, and gaming, to name a few, but needed something a little bit more "fad" oriented. So, the concept of What We Wear was born. What we wear is a pseudo fashion magazine for the "grunge" community. It keeps up with the latest "fads" including , hair cuts, music, fashion and skateboarding. My inspirations for the layout were taken from "SPIN" which I subscribe to and love,especially when it comes to the design of the layout. Each article and layout in the magazine, including the front cover, compliment each other.
Using inspiration from magazines I read and studied , was extremely helpful in creating this layout. The headlines are perfect for the subject of the magazine. The colors are complementary to each other and really give you a feel for the skateboard culture.
