In order to gain a sense of how architecture magazines are structured compostionally, I went out and purchased a copy of 'Blueprint' architecture. Here I have selected some of the most inspiring, colourful examples of layouts which I will use for inspiration within my work.
Here are some of my Initial thumbnails. I selected various elements that I thought were interesting in the Blueprint magazine, and recreated them on layout paper. During feedback sessions I was advised to do more free-hand layouts to allow for more flexibility with my design work. I find working free-hand quite difficult, however I will try to get into the habit of not using a ruler!
