A Very Pink Spread

11 Nov

I think that the typography in this spread is very effective. The embellishments and effects used to turn Pink into a tattoo are incredibly eye catching and helps to draw the reader into the article. The headline is also very easy to read in addition to being attention grabbing. The designers also created a very catchy color gestalt with variations of Pink, clearly a play on the artist’s name. The text of her name also jumps out at the reader from the hot pink background which gives the text an added dimension.

The deck head is in bold and in all caps and intrigues the reader into following the story, which claims to show the reader a softer side of the tough girl, Pink. The deckhead also sits neatly right above the highly readable beginning of the story, gently easing the viewer into reading, at least the start of the article. This ideology was also followed in the opposite page, where Pink is wearing light pink clothing on a light background, and the pull quote states that her heartbreak is turned into songs that help other people, also written in a pink hue. The page is not overcrowded with text and the combination of headline deckhead and pull quote, all lure a reader into reading the article. Everything in the layout works well together, but it’s aided heavily by an easy to read, bold serif typeface.

    Overall nice work. I would watch starting almost every sentence with the, try and loosen up your writing to let your voice come through more.
