Dates depend on “Pantone”

29 May

Pantone is the most common color knowledge between designers and one of those designers used pantone not for color coding but for a creative work. He mentions his aim as:

My brief was to create a calendar for Pantone, the world-renowned authority on colour. The main aim for me was to make this calendar relevant on a global scale. With the colour wheel being universally recognised, I used this and combined it with a mosaic made up of 1440 different images to create my main graphic. Sticking with the whole worldwide idea, I have included many visual references to a host of different countries within the mosaic, and highlighted many of the main religious and cultural holidays throughout the year.

To answer a question I have been asked a few times, no ‘special software’ was used to produce this. The grid was build in Illustrator and I placed all 1440 images by hand in (as close to as possible) some sort of colour order.”

Magazine Design- Content Proposal

24 Mar

As the second project of  VA 302 class we are expected to design a multipage magazine for our second hand and design shop “Bit Pazarı”.The starting point is going to be naming it. I came up with some possible names as; “dükkan”, “tezgah”, “bit kadar” and liked “tezgah”at most.It evokes me the variety and shopping. For the second step; before setting up a system it is important to decide on the content of the magazine. In “tezgah”, I’ll have 3 department and 5 feature parts.

The departments are going to be the index,reader’s designs and notes and the astrology part.Then I decided to have 5 features which will be consist of urban life style, fashion shot, interview with designers, music and blog.

To be more specific let’s have a deeper look at all the content.

Departments

1)Index-team information

  • Meaning that the editor,creative department,advertisement department,art director etc. information
  • There may be the editor’s note as a thin column beside or as a new page.

2)Readers’ Designs and Notes

  • We are very used to see readers’letters as a department in many of the women magazines so to create a new interest for the reader it can be changed into the design&notes instead of complaining or thankful letters.

3)Astrology

  • For fun or real interest, I see that most of the people care what astrology says.

Features

1)Urban Life Style

  • The fashion followers mostly care what the others wear, how they live, what they watch etc.Under this feature there may be most popular film, book etc. and the advises to add on season’s to do list.

2)Fashion shot

  • Photos from professional fashion photographers. (maybe related to the Bit Pazarı that season’s new designs)

3)Interview with designers

  • In this part for my mag it is not important to have a famous name, he/she can be one of Bitpazarı designers.

4)Music

  • I think music is very much related to the notion of  “style”. The people who have a flavor of music, shape their life styles according to it. For example; many people are influenced by the punk,electronic or indie scene and demonstrate the effect of the music scene on individuals.

5)Blog

  • Keeping a blog in which you can find anything about fashion and life styles became very popular these days. So adding such a feature that is chosen by the editor for the season can be fun and interesting I think. This can be a collective blog like http://www.lookbook.nu(ex.9) or just personal like http://www.garancedore.fr/en/.(ex.10)

Cover

And overall for the cover I am really not much sure but want to go with such an idea that the music magazine bant has done for all of their issues; using a design. It can be anything; illustration,graphic design,poster kind,handmade art etc. with just the logo and the issue number on it.(ex.11)
