It is said that a picture can speak a thousand words. I’m a sucker for well-constructed visuals and over the past few years I have been working at trying to understand the importance of flow in typography and the overall designs of billboards, posters, flyers, etc. Not only that but really understand the importance of typography. “Never judge a book by its cover” but we all do it weekly or monthly when scrolling through the magazine stands or looking at billboards. If I see a terrible cover to a magazine why would I bother picking it up? Studies have shown that 80 percent of consumer magazines’ newsstand sales are determined by what is shown on the cover. So the success and failure of a magazine of course has many factors behind it. But the cover is the main factor to a magazine selling really well or being utter failure overtime.
By the great graces of the Internet world Magazine Wall came up on my screen, man I can scroll, click, and save images for hours off of this Tumblr page. It’s a good space to really grab inspiration if you’re at a complete lose of where you would like to start when in the designing process. Check it out! Share it! Thank me later! #NoDrake
