This project was a little harder for me than the other ones. It took me a while to come up with ideas for how to set it up. I'm happy with it for the most part. I wanted my contents page to be different than most magazines but still work. I like the layout but I could have added more text information. My cover came together pretty well. I wanted it to look like a legit magazine cover and I'm not sure if I succeeded. I didn't put a big title on my article which I should have done... don't exactly know why I didn't realize that because on my first draft of the magazine I had done that?! Anyway, overall I'm pretty happy! Let me know what you think! Thanks!

FINAL!! So happy to be done with it! I really liked doing it though and learning so much more about photoshop! The type on the left is a little big and i put the spine title the wrong way but all in all.. super happy with it! :)

I didn't really like how my first one turned out so I went to the cemetery to take some more pictures and put an actual book down and put it together the way I wanted instead of trying to photoshop in a million different things. I got some really good pictures from that shoot and put it in the layout of front and back cover instead of trying to design 2 separate ones. This picture is the one I decided to work with!

BOOK COVER!! I decided to make a cover for The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. My initial idea was to have a big bonfire type thing burning a bunch of books and a little girl running away with one of them but that kinda gives away more of the story than I wanted. I then had the idea of doing a scene from a graveyard. soo... this is my first attempt at that..

Final pictograms!! Lots of frustration and time.. but I think they turned out pretty well! The far left is a little top heavy but I don't know exactly how to fix that. Other than that .. I'm happy with them!

These are my first attempts at creating my pictograms... the people are still pretty sketchy and the banks of snow look like clouds...

My next problem was deciding how to stylize my people. I'm still not sure how I'm going to do them.
My next idea was to do weather warning signs. These are all for winter...
These were some first ideas for my pictograms. I wanted to do something with weather, seasons, or the beach.
