Second double page spread ideas.

With the first spread idea, I really wanted to try something different and bring a new dynamic to the spread. Unfortunately I eventually came to the conclusion that it simply didn’t work, with the writing being difficult to read, despite changes to colour, font style etc. 

The second spread idea was mainly me trying to play around with different simple layouts. I like the first page of the spread, however I believe that the second was extremely simple, and both as a whole showed little creativity. 

In the end, it was a toss up between the final two layout ideas. The first included large chunks of text on both spreads, and I really liked the picture layout on the second spread. However, I decided that the main text on one spread worked better and so I moved onto the second layout idea. 

At first I kept the second spread the same, and changed the first, and then  I decided to play around more with the layout on the second spread. I much prefer the picture layout to how it was previously, because it shows the two large images of the countryside, and the smaller ones underneath, showing what it changes into, despite the images not literally being before and after images, I feel this works well.

Inspiration for my second double page spread on the countryside. 

I think with this double page spread I am going to be a lot more creative and adventurous. I also really like the idea of having each page as one image with the text over the top.

It is obvious to me that I still like simplicity, so I am going to try and keep to that.

Double page spread layout progression. 

1. I chose this image as the establishing image, simply as I felt it was the strongest. After looking at an almost ridiculous amount of fonts I decided to use ‘Impact’ because it is bold and simple. I first chose a black font. 

2. I decided the text was getting lost so chose a white font, yet I still wasn’t 100% happy. 

3. Then I decided to add a ‘drop shadow’ to the text, which I think has helped it stand out much more. I didn’t want to do anything further to this as I felt it was simple and clean, and I didn’t want to add any clutter.

4. For the second double page this was my first picture layout idea. 

5. I decided that the first layout was too difficult to add text into neatly, so I decided to use an whole page for one of the images (cropped), and enlarge the second image.

6. I then added the text layout, and I was happy with this layout. However, I felt that I could do something a little more with the layout. 

7&8. This was my next (And pretty much final) layout. I decided to work with it, adding in my text, a simple line to separate the article and credit/website, and cropping the image, simply to allow room for the text (although I think it adds to the layout overall too. I also adjusted the horizontal scale on the text to 122%, as I felt impact was harder to read when the text is smaller as the letters are very close to each other. I also decided to add a ‘drop cap’ at the beginning of the article.

9. I felt that the page was still lacking, so added part of a quote from the article (writing this now I have realised I need to go back and add a drop shadow to this) and decided to add colour, using red to keep in with the subject matter (wine!), which I think works really well.
