// Book Design
I've drawn inspiration from these designs by Shanti Sparrow, an artist on Behance. I love the bright and bold colours that she's incorporated in the designs, and I love the graphics and how they've been laid out accordingly. In my own magazine, I want to employ a colour scheme of bright, vibrant colours and this has given me some inspiration on how I can.
This is a journal in which uses the CRAP principles throughout the layout including the contrast between the title type and main body text. Repetiton can include the use of a header on top of every page, the black rule on top of pages containing type. The alignment of the text is mainly aligned to the left except for the front cover and photographic page spread. There's a good use of proximity and utilisation of white space making everything easily read.
designed by FBA : I drew from this an idea I have been toying with for my bookshelves. I can run book jacket blanks through my printer: white book covers add a color stripe for each genre and subject (yes, I still value my college books), for a bright and cheery re-do of what has become a cluttered mess. I really like this idea.
