The first step in my Magazine Layout Project was to make sketches and a shape map. This was so that I could get all of my ideas out of my head and onto paper. I started off with two sketches (shown below) and then took my favorite one and started to build a shape map of it in InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator. The black boxes are where the images will go, and there is placeholder text where my story will go. The color scheme is analogous from red to blue.
This is the final project so far.
