InDesign Magazine Assignment

For this assignment I made a magazine about Lego for adult Enthusiasts. To differentiate this magazine from other Lego magazines that are often directed to a more juvenile audience, I decided to go for a more art focused publication. I used a very clean simple look with single bold images and light sans-serif text. I tried to add some playfulness back into the document by staggering the positioning of the columns.  Large margins and lots of white space with a simple colour palette of black and white really allows the focus of the page to be about the imagery.  I sourced the articles from various news sources online and are based on adult Lego usage. Additionally  I tried to create new ads that  kept in line with the theme.

Lego _ Type for Web Assignment

For this assignment, I decided to share some facts about a hobby of mine, LEGO!

First, I collected a whole bunch of information and facts off the internet on Lego. Then I placed all the in information into my html document and applied the appropriate tags.

Once the text was properly tagged. I started a styling the different elements in CSS. I tried to stay consistent using the same fonts and colours through out my formatting. I found the fonts used on google fonts and used a blocky heavy font for the titles and headings and lighter font for the body.

In the Body of the text, I repaced all the inch marks with quotation marks as well as when appropriate, dashes with en–dashes.

I included a table with formatting styles that matched the rest of the page, using the font used for the headings for the table’s titles.
