Critique: Designing departments

I am getting more acquainted with VOX's department design style. It makes designing inside pages a lot easier. I actually had more to design this week than a half-page too, which is also a plus. The music section actually got more than a page! I think something fell through for arts and we had an online-only piece that got bumped up. So, even though it is coming easier, it still took me more than 2 hours to complete these pages. Getting everything to fit was the difficult part. I had to rearrange the pages a couple times. I really like the finished product. BUT.... the photos were changed at the last minute to show all four members of the band. I am not too keen on the result...

As for the other things I am working on ...

  • The protoype: I am working on the DIY magazine, and I have come up with a concept that I think really reflects the idea behind the mission statement. Because of the impending presentations that is all I am going to say, but stay tuned for the finished product in a couple of days.
  • All those logos: The class is also working on logos for an new, fresh face in country music. Twenty of them are due next Tuesday, and I have several sketches and other ideas about what they are going to look like. I am taking things one step at a time (trying to at least), so those will start to be executed after the prototype presentation.

  1. Two pages for music? That'd be fun. They turned out great. Can't wait to see them in print.
