The challenge of this project was to create a magazine publication made exclusively for K-pop fans. Before I even began this project, I wrote up a creative breif which included some key words that would describe the look and feel of this publication.
This particular issue would focus on popular group, BTS, and their most recent comeback following the release of this issue. The feature story for this publication would revolve around the group and have a particular layout design. This layout would continue on the cover and table of contents. By doing this, this publication would communicate to the viewer that this particular issue is featuring this group.
Since this culture is highly visual and conceptual, I wanted to focus on this element in my design. I used the pastel colors that were also used from the group’s comeback and the teaser photos which were released. To draw attention to the members, I created COB’s and placed them on a flat-colored background. Also, this particular publication uses a circle as a graphic element that mimics the dot in the mastehead. I decided to include this in my design within the pull quotes.
