A Note From Autumn
For this layout, I used the same basic design as the magazine layout: large block of color next to vertical picture next to solid block of another color. I also used two different colors in my title, and let the title cross over onto the photo. I really like this design because pictures that are in unusual shapes (meaning a long, narrow rectangle or a square instead of a 4x6 aspect ratio) are more eye-catching. This layout is obviously inspired by the magazine spread, but it’s not a complete copy.
