TRAVEL magazine page layout
Sorry about the huge image everyone.. but I figured it was cool enough that you wouldn't mind. For awhile now I've been absolutely infatuated with magazine page layout. I found this on pinterest.com, originally from behance.net, showing off the outstanding layout of TRAVEL magazine. I'm pretty sure it's a foreign magazine because its been really hard to find, but the post on behance said this...
"TRAVEL magazine has been designed to show modern perspective in travelling. It focuses on well-designed spaces and creative way of showing popular landmarks. Vivid colours, strong typography, unconventional form of layout and dynamic pictures in large format make TRAVEL looks like an album that you can put on your shelf."
I love this layout both because of its visual appeal, and because with that, it also has functionality. I like the fact that each page is slightly different, although they stay with similar themes of bright colors, treated pictures, large headlines, and interesting shapes for call-outs and added features. You can tell the magazine has an overall design theme, although they seem to lack a universal grid or template. However, I don't think that's a bad thing. I think this magazine shows that you really can think outside the box when presenting print information, without actually taking away from what it's saying.
