Here I have designed a magazine article which is based on my original idea, however I have focused on the use of a colour palette.
To achieve this colour palette I picked a few key colours from the image used in the header. I then used these colours to make borders round the images, to colour the text and I also made some blocks in the background where both the images and text sit.
I like how the colour palette is still fairly subtle, but helps to make certain aspects of the design stand out more. I also feel like the colours compliment each other really well.
Compared to my first attempt at designing the magazine article, I feel like this one looks much better. I think that the subtle use of colour gives it a more interesting appearance and the text looks much tidier because I have justified it this time. I’ve also aligned the text boxes and images better – the margins around these are now much neater.
