Finally decided to upload all my DG magazine stuff
Here is some of the inspiration I drew upon in creating my design:
Initially I had this Idea that I would create a line illustration of a 1930 ish art deco looking car. This fell through as I found it far too complex. I was just about to put pen to paper when I decided to scrap the idea.
This image has very effective font and colours that I hope to use in my design. It creates a good visual tension as well as a balanced hierarchy.
The heading again attracted my attention right away. Its bold, has a great texture looking effect that jumps out at you. I like the colours of the depthie blue, creams and reds.
This is again going on with my line illustration idea that I stated with. Another great art deco inspired car design which has a great shape
At this point its quite clear to me that I defiantly need to incorporate some kind of tonal shapes which create effective movement type feelings. Secondly the use of greys and cream type colours are also used quite often. On that note I will defiantly have to incorporate these points into my design.
This gave me the inspiration to use simple shapes, geometrical shapes which create some kind of depth within them. I also really like the tone and unity that the clouds are creating in this depiction. Maybe I could use this as a background of some sort?
The simplicity of just the grey and black create such an elegance, great contrast between the colours and creates effective dominance through different tones, creating balanced hierarchy. What I really like is the way that the different sized font are used.
Use the photos of the cars in a rendition of the image above, very subtle mid tones but dominating creams and darker tone values.
Different perspective, distortion of images and vibrant complimentary colours!!
