University Project - Magazine Cover

This piece was a mock-up of a magazine cover for an existing magazine brand. The image I chose to use as the final magazine cover back then is probably not the image I would choose today. At the time I asked for a lot of feedback on the various images and ended up siding with popular opinion rather than my gut instinct. 

 This choice led to what I feel is a less satisfactory answer to the design brief. I included this 'mistake' in my gallery partly because I quite like the raw images themselves but also because it marks a point where I started to address a lack of confidence in my opinions as a designer.

 It also highlighted the balance I should try to strike between creating things from my own aesthetic taste and adjusting my designs to align with the tastes of others. Overall it was a pretty neat project to work on.
