For this project, I worked in collaboration with two student photographers in Langara College’s Professional Photography program. I was responsible for designing a magazine cover concept to present to the photographers and art directing a photoshoot to get the desire photos for my design.
To begin the project, I researched effective food magazine covers, selected the colour palette, and created a placeholder design with sample typography and image. I gave the photographers the documents and explained to them the direction of my design. On the day of the photoshoot, I brought the necessary props, worked with the photographers to stylize them, and directed them on which angles to take the photos to achieve my design vision.
Once I received the photos back from the photographers, I went through them and selected the ones I wanted to work with. I edited several of the photos and played with variations on my original concept with the final images.
