DESIGNBRIEF: To develop a smart looking school magazine design to portray the academic year in a visually engaging way. Staying on brand and giving the magazine its own identity.
DESIGNSOLUTION: After a half day visit to the school to get an overview of Witham and the school values Core worked to design some School magazine layouts for the cover and several spreads with options for style.
The School Magazine design
Existing brand colours and fonts were used but a masthead and headline font was added to give the Magazine its own identity, yet still retaining the familiar Witham style.
The magazine regularly reaches 108 pages and is perfect bound with a matt lamination to protect the print and give a tactile finish. The cover design changes slightly each year utilising different block colours. While the archive of issues retains a uniform feel, the colour change helps to identify each issue.
Over the course of several issues the word count has been reduced for articles in a bid to use large focal images to give features impact and balance.
