I had the idea to do a stereo sound display to show the idea of sound.
Another idea I had would be to use a wavy line like these, to signify sound.
I decided to use the stereo display idea. This was my first attempt. I thought it would be best to make it look symmetrical but it doesn’t look as good as I thought it would. I found it hard to make the idea look realistic.
I decided to change it and make it unsymmetrical. I hope this makes it look a little more realistic. I don’t have a screen shot of it but I then went in to Photoshop and added the inner shadow so it matches the others.
Is your design clear and easy to understand?
I think this design is clear as the blocks are easy to see even when I zoom right out. I am not sure if people will understand that this is meant to represent a stereo sound display.
How might others view it? How could it be mis-read?
People may think they are looking at sugar cubes, building blocks or city tower blocks.
Does it look appropriate or does it refer to other meanings?
I think the idea is appropriate because most people should recognise sounds levels.
Beautiful bright colours.
I decided to try another idea using the Cyber goth styled in purple as the first try wasn’t perfect. This is what I came up with. I cut off part of the photo and just used her face and hair on one page. On the other page I put in a pull quote.
I like this idea but it is quite simple and nothing particularly interesting is happening. It seems quite formulaic. I’m going to try another idea.
Here is my first double page spread idea. Here is the picture I thought I would try using.
Here is what I came up with. It was more difficult than I thought to make it look well-ordered and balanced. The columns of text don’t look very comfortable on the page so I’ll have to try a new idea.
