This magazine was a project for my Publishing Design class. The goal was to work with page grids to create a comprehensive layout design, design coherent typography, and increase our InDesign skills.
I began my design by brainstorming topics and sketching different ideas for the magazine. I narrowed down my options originally to either an aerospace, baseball, or architecture magazine.
Once I had my topic chosen, I was able to focus my designs on a banner for the cover, as well as what content I wanted the magazine to contain. I also went through several name variations before deciding on the final name, "APEX."
After the initial brainstorming and design process was finished, I was able to lay out my articles into a storyboard and then begin building my magazine in InDesign.
