Today we got swamped with @twentywhat design meetings to narrow down our nameplate (look familiar?). It felt like a real magazine, with constant instructions to change even the tiniest things (like the tail of a “t”). I loved it.
Tomorrow we’ll meet bright and early over coffee to plan the magazine’s style sheet and color scheme. Can’t wait — thanks to everyone on the interwebz who shared wise design advice to me yesterday!
Today we got assigned to #redesign the @twentywhat logo and nameplate! Here are some ideas I contributed. We’ll vote on the official one tomorrow. Do any stand out to you? I tend to prefer bold typefaces, industrial lines and splashes of color. One of my classmates told me my work looked modern and edgy. I really liked to hear that but it’s tricky because @twentywhat is a professional women’s magazine, and an “edgy look” doesn’t fly for the target audience. Still, I’m really happy to play with type, color & graphics again. It’s like being back in Boot Camp. :)
[I admit— I snatched that fashion photo from the Web! I don’t know the photographer and am sorry not to give credit. In my defense, this is purely for my education in design. Zero commercial gain.]
