CONTEXT OF PRACTICE 3 - VISUAL RESEARCH - ADVENTICE MAGAZINE

My girlfriend returned from her trip to France with a selection of publications she purchased from 'Off Print Paris', an arts-publishing fair featuring vendors selling a range of publications from a variety of creative disciplines. 

While looking through the various magazines and zines she purchased, the design of one of the publications; 'Adventice Issue 02', really caught my eye as a potential source of inspiration for my physical outcome. 



ADVENTICE ISSUE 02

The images featured below display the aspects of the publication I found inspirational;



  • Simple page compositions featuring typography and a simple background help focus the viewers attention on important segments of information. 
  • Such compositions would work well for displaying important quotes form my dissertation. 


  • Illustrations simply consist of black and a spot colour - Applying a limited use of colour helps to reduce the outcome environmental impact. 


  • The varying sizes of typography applied on the above spread helps to break up bodies of text and helps to keep the reader engaged when reading.




  • Juxtaposing segments of text and whole page images helps to create balance and does not overwhelm the reader with massive amounts of body copy.  


  • Large aspects of type are used to create interesting typographic page compositions. 







APPLICABLE ELEMENTS

After reviewing the publications design I reviewed my analysis to identify design aspects that can be utilised when creating the physical aspect of the module. 

  • Simple page compositions featuring typography and a simple background help focus the viewers attention on important segments of information - would work well for displaying important quotes form my dissertation.
  • The varying sizes of typography applied on the above spread helps to break up bodies of text and helps to keep the reader engaged when reading.
