KRISTIN’S LIKING the feedback she’s getting here, so she’s decided to throw a couple more pages our way. It’s been a busy week for me, so it took me a few days to post these.
From Kristin’s note:
“I liked the feedback from my last page. So I’m going to send you these two pages I designed this past Sunday. To tell you the truth, I was a little disappointed in both. If I had more time, I think I would have done each a little more differently.
“For ‘Keeping Time,’ I used a stock photo of a clock on parchment paper for a background to give it an old-timey feel. I used one of the clocks as a cutout because the actual picture was kind of drab. I liked the typography with the headline but towards the bottom it loses something. (It might be because my editor wanted the entire story to stay on the front) Or is it something else?
“For ‘Harry Potter,’ I really liked the design. The only thing I would now change is to make Harry come all the way to the bottom instead of having him come halfway down the page. For the head, I took a picture of the Harry Potter book I had at home and then cut the title out. Is that cheating?
Love feedback, but again . . . be nice.”
So, let’s hear it, folks!
