After the success of the first episode of Graphic Design Without a Computer, I just had to make Part 2. This episode is all about layouts and compositions and hierarchy.
As you can see in the video, I tried not to get too specific about the different projects, since I’ve found that often it only takes most people a small spark of inspiration before they go off and create something completely unique, and I don’t want to stifle that by giving too many guidelines or instructions. But, you can check out my designs and examples below, and then try it out yourself!
The example magazine layout I designed for the video, using Xeroxed pages out of Elle and HGTV Magazine. As I said in the video, don’t worry about making the text or images make sense – just concentrate on experimenting with different types of layouts!
Thanks so much for watching, and I hope you guys enjoy this episode as much as the first one! I’m so excited for the next episode, which will be really fun and get back to learning about typography. Look out for another supplemental blog post in just a few days!
