This DPS is going to be on my trip to australia written more generally about what australia is like.
I will be writing a short artical about what it is like there and also about things to do, For this one I decided that I wanted something a bit different but still along the same lines.
This is the main image I decided to use for the title page.I just liked the colours and also the compesition of the image lends itself to have type in the sky part of the image.
I cropped it down to still include the boat to give a focus to the image, I then decided I wanted the title to fade into the image so I decided to create a box of gradient which fades from white to clear that fades into the image, I really liked the effect this gave so I placed some type over but felt it was to simple, I wanted to make the type more interesting so considered having different colours etc and decided it would suit the opulant theme to have a gold title.
I popped the type into illustrator and made it into onlines and a compound path – I then used a gold backgeound in a clipping mask to create the gold lettering.
The end was slightly too light so unvisible. I moved it to a darker part of the picture so it looked a bit more visible and overall more effect.
I then created the other page with a short artical about the visit to Oz and added some pictures that are relative to the points I make throughout the artical, I think it is interesting to include some images that relate to the artical to make the communication more clear and move the readers eyes around the page as they read.
