MPP: Develop Article – Highland

PLEASE NOTE: All images have been contributed to me through a collaboration with the original author. I have their permission in writing to use their images in my magazine project.

Images collected from Neil Massey.

Original Images used:

I did not manipulate the images I chose of Neil’s except for cropping them to fit my grid and layout.

I created an illustration by hand to be a backdrop for the spreads. The illustration is of the highlands, but as a simple outline as I did not want the piece to be over powering, more as a subtle enhancement of the article’s theme. I then placed a colour behind the illustration picked out from Neil’s photos to keep the piece consistent.

My illustration:


I ended up developing the layout below. I chose the typeface for the heading and caption because it is light and delicate but with a solid structure or vertical and horizontal lines. It just seemed to fit right with the theme or nature and I really love how it looks.
