Designing the layout for the final outcome took way longer than what I thought it would hah! I just couldn’t make up my mind because every time I printed it I found things I didn’t like about it. It is so different to see a thing on screen versus when it’s printed and you actually hold it in your hands, it changes its appearance so much. Anyways- I started out using the colours silver and gold a lot but pretty quickly realised it wouldn’t look good printed and scratched that idea. Then I moved on to adding red as I thought that would be good representation of the monotone in the movement. I kept the red in there for a long time but altered other things about the layout so it wouldn’t look too boxy and kept some images overlapping the folds so it flowed better and represented the movement more. Here are all my tries!
First try, gold and silver and red
Adding my original screen print design and having a red line flow through the page
Cover changed, incorporated more red
Finding some spelling mistakes and changing the cover again
Back to the red, this time more
Changing the monotone red to a letterpress outcome
Making the red bit smaller
And in the end I decided to send this to print but on the day changed my mind again. The red looked too off and I wanted more of a silver and light feeling instead, without actually using the colour grey.
