I have started looking at some more creative page layouts as I would like the think outside the box with my design and create something more interesting.
I found this imagery on Pinterest as I felt this usually shows more artistic and different examples of this.
The layout below is very interesting and clear with a demonstration of large imagery and type underneath it it very different, I really like the title in the bottom left corner instead of the original top left hand corner title or centre aligned at the top.
I thin the grid formation of the pictures as it makes for a clear for the reader to see and understand the imagery.It forces you to read it from the top left image to the bottom right image so this is something the designer will have done with purpose to insure the images where read in the way they liked them to be read.
I like this layout below as it presents a traditional title and body text (in columns) whilst also presented a large decorative although modern looking drop cap.One of the techniques heavily used in design is carry a theme over a piece by choosing with an eyedropper a colour from the imagery you are using, this is something I do often in my own design work.The piece below has chosen the bright orange colour from the imagery (on the staircase).To present colour in the adjacent page.
This is to add a pop of colour and also to highlight important information to the audience.
Although this colour is subtle in the imagery it just carries on the theme and creates the same flow in the double page spread.
The example below demonstrates a modern design show casing an image that is broken up with a box and an anchoring caption below.
I like the one page being an image and the other page being informative, I like the caption being across the corner of the image although this would have to be done with something in the image that is not important to the message it is conveying.
