Week 9 and 10: Pace and Contrast

My Journey into Graphic Design

Learning activity week 9 and 10 – Pace and Contrast

Compare the design (in terms of pace and contrast) of an online magazine, blog or website to that of a printed magazine, book or journal.
What differences can you see between the kinds of design strategies used in the two formats?

Write down your findings and upload it to Moodle 

Pace and contast are important tools in composition, fundamental in creating an interesting experience for the reader. How one uses these tools is important in order to draw in the reader, and draw attention to what is perhaps the most important information for the reader. By using pace and contrast correctly we can capture the readers attention, and create a desire to keep on reading and wanting more.

For this activity I have compared the online magazine “The Hollywood Reporter”  with the print version of People Magazine.
