Project 2A: Life Magazine Cover


Design a magazine cover that showcases yourself, as well as articles about certain aspects of your life.

Process (Programs, Tools, Skills):

When coming up with a design, I somewhat misread the directions, and thought that we were supposed to do a general magazine cover highlighting a random story (I have a tendency to skim when I read.) so my first attempt looked like this…


Pretty boring, huh?

Yeah, I did not like the picture I used and some of my aligning was off, but it was solid start, and through some refinement I made the better one you see at the top. Here’s what I did.

  1. Since I have a very visual mind, I somewhat skipped sketching and jumped right into InDesign. I knew what I wanted and lept into action.
  2. Starting a new document in 8.5 x 11 size, I inserted my image and the LIFE logo, and locked them into place.
  3. I then created several article titles and placed them on the lower right-hand side to help balance out the design.
  4. I made the lower band to help show the issue number and volume number, and other little details to make it seem like a real world product.
  5. I then exported as a .jpeg in 150 ppi. (I would’ve done 300 ppi because i prefer the higher quality.)


I wanted to show who I am and what I like to think about. As I said in my video, I consider myself a very intellectual person, and I wanted to effectively portray that with this project.


Those who are interested in learning about a wide variety of topics.

Top Thing Learned:

DON’T JUMP IN WITHOUT TESTING THE WATER! ( or in this case, sketching your idea and defining your audience)

  • Process: Coding was a very daunting task when I first saw it, but the more I learned, the more I took to it like a fish to water. After creating the logo in Illustrator, I began coding in Notepad ++. by far the hardest part was trying to create the style sheet in CSS. In HTML, I could follow it easily, because it had a beginning, middle, and end. In CSS however, it’s more a list of elements, and it was a chore to figure out which line of code should go into which element. I got it in the end, and the result is wonderfully retro.
  • Programs/Tools Used: Adobe Illustrator, Notepad ++
  • Message: This is a movie reviewer who is very neat and orderly, and will tell you clearly which movies are good, why they are good, and whether they are worth your time.
  • Top Thing Learned: How to code, and do wonders with it.
  • Color Scheme and Color Names: Analagous – Red, and yellow with various shades of grey along with black, I wanted to provide some formality with the fonts, and to evoke a sense of classic hollywood, a time of fantasy, swashbuckling, and high adventure.
  • Title Font Name & Category: Copperplate Gothic, Oldstyle
  • Body Font Name & Category: Courier New, Slab Serif
  • Changes made to the CSS: The major changes were changing the background to a image, changing the fonts, center-lining the headlines, adding a border to the logo image, and inverting the colors for the body
  • Audience: I intend to reach 20-30 year olds with this logo, evoking a sense of nostalgia, especially when connected to classic movies.

  • Description: My revision of business cards and stationery for my dad’s dental office.

  • Message: This dental office is friendly, warm, and will be there for all seasons.
  • Audience: anyone, especially people who are scared of the dentist.
  • Top Thing Learned: InDesign is not my favorite Adobe program, it can be clunky and awkward to use, but if you know her tricks, you can create great stuff

  • Description: Logo for my personal mark
  • Process: I’ve had the idea of using a star in a circle as my own mark for some time, but all the ones I’ve tried to come up with were somewhat lack luster. However, when I got this assignment, it really got my creative juices flowing. My rough I tried a few different variations, but I was right the first time as most voted for my first logo. So in my final draft, I refined it further, adding the starburst from my third design, and making the star somewhat 3D.
  • Programs, Tools Used: Adobe Illustrator
  • Message: People can rise to the occasion, with the right tools and know-how, creating something unique and insightful.
  • Top Thing Learned: How to use Illustrator effectively

With this, I wanted to recreate the first vision using two statues I had seen on campus, the Joseph Smith one from the Hinckley building, and a bronze statue of Christ from the snow building. The results, I have to say, are somewhat underwelming. The message is lost, mainly because I never had a solid one to begin with, The feathering was hard to get a hold of. It either faded too much, or not enough. Also, I need to work on my typography, I know the basic styles, I just don’t know which ones go well together.
