On my first day of Digital Illustration class, a tool that has astounded me, demonstrated in class was adobe illustrator’s mesh tool. What the mesh tool does is create an object or shape with lines that can make a three dimensional object on a two dimensional surface. Once you use the mesh tool to create lines of an object or shape, you could also add gradients that can be useful of showing a three dimensional object to certain areas using different colors like tints and shades that can be seen almost as any real image could look.

The three inspirational page layouts above that I have chosen to make a magazine will give me ideas that influence my theme of entertainment. These page layouts will attract viewers based on the use of text with bigger sized letters and also uses texts place around different positions to attract viewers in a playful way. Colors are also grabbing viewers attention that plays a big role in making covers for magazines to show feeling and emotion to correlate role models inspirationally.
The two color palettes set above that I will be using are monochromatic and complimentary colors. The reason for using a monochromatic is to fit the color from light to dark for a setting or background. I will also use complementary colors for the most part to identify role models or characters from a movie, video game and music to represent themselves using colors to fit suitably for entertaining viewers within mood or feeling from my story.

The magazine I will create is named “Season Finale Game of Thrones”. Does the theory of John Snow come true after defeating the Lannisters and becoming the rightful King in King’s landing or Daenrys (the mother of dragons)? Is Arya ever going to achieve her goal assassinating her list of enemies? Will there be reunions of friends or foes? Stay tune for the next season finale of HBO’s original series “Game of Thrones”.
My theme, “Entertainment magazine” is designed to show music, films and video games that are amusing to look at and are enjoyable. Entertainment magazines attracts fans to look at their famous role models such as musicians, video game characters and actors . The purpose of Entertainment magazines is to attract their fans, to see their favorite role models which interest them from being seen in video games, singing and acting. This theme accomplishes fans to grab their attention into feeling inspired.
Entertainment Magazine (Gaming/Film)
My choice of theme for the magazine layout is Entertainment Magazine. I want to create something fun and cool that attracts viewers who are into gaming and films. In order to accomplish an entertainment magazine, I will post publicly to call out fans who are interested in a certain video game and/or film to be announced.
The design of Futura’s font looks modern and simplistic based on its geometric shapes (triangles, squares and circles) represented and influenced by Bauhaus. Futura is classified as geometric sans serif typeface that was created in 1927 by Paul Renner; he was not a member of Bauhaus yet he shared his perspective of Futura, believing that modern typeface should express modern models. The purpose of Futura was to clean its form and that is reflected in its appearance of efficiency and moving forward.
