layout progress

When I had my photos, I started to work on the layout. I knew how many pictures I wanted to put in the zine, but had a difficulty with putting them all together with interview, frames and typography.

I had a clear idea of what I want my zine to look. I didn’t want it to be pink – that was my main direction. Find something fresh, inspiring and different. Then I thought about the 90s. Colours that I think of are red and yellow. At the same time, I didn’t really know how to achieve this effect. I started with that two-coloured theme, but it seemed a bit boring to be on every page.

Then I decided to add a shade of light lilac violet, as it’s not really obvious mixture and still looks modern.

I liked the effect more, but still it wasn’t was I was looking for.

At the end, I stayed with red and yellow combined with black and white, and elements of lilac violet. Then, I was finally happy about the colours.

I’ve spent a lot of time looking for fonts suiting my publication. I wanted them to be inspired by 90s magazines and typography. I wanted to combine simple bold fonts with more complicated ones, inspired by medieval handmade books.
