'Flow' Magazine Double Page Spread Step 3

The second step was adding the writing. I used the house style seen in the previous pages by making the heading red, this is a direct contrast to the rest of the spread

I decided to add the photo as my first step. I have made the original image black-and-white so that it matches with the colour palette. The image itself suggests aggression, a common type of behaviour in rap music.

This is the base design for my introduction. The black page will be the background for another picture of the cover model and the white page will contain the writing.

'Flow' Magazine Contents Page 2 Step 8

The final step for this page was to add the names of the magazine's social media pages. Like I said when talking about the front cover, social media is one of the best ways to promote a brand or company in this day and age, so having social media accounts allows the magazine to communicate with readers in ways that wouldn't be possible a few years ago.

'Flow' Magazine Contents Page 2 Step 7

The next step was to add the page number and the website as I did for the first page of contents. This gives the reader an indicator on where they are in the magazine. The website can be used to look at extra content not available in the magazine, such as video interviews and Q&As.

'Flow' Magazine Contents Page 2 Step 6

For my third and final photo, I decided to place the photo on the left side and place the writing on the right side, in order to effectively use the space and create an aesthetically pleasing layout in the process.

'Flow' Magazine Contents Page 2 Step 5

I then added another photo showing someone else who is featured in the article, and again I added some context underneath. I decided to use a red background this time in order to match the house style of the magazine. I also added new sections to the 'Regulars' section, to use up more space and display more of the content available.
