Abstract layouts

Had to work with type.Designing across multiple pages.
I was required to produce 3 sets of three page layouts and little bit more which had to demonstrate individuality, yet maintain a cohesion that made them appear as if they belonged to each other...
First page had to be very simple, the next more complex and the third more complex still. I was required to cut out and use existing individual samples of text of particular magazine disregarding the lack of sense but concentrating on the visual texture, tone and shape of the text, together with the use of space. Image in the form of photographs and illustrations could not be used.


 SET 2

 SET 3

In another exercise I was required to produce two A3 pages, using specific grid. Each page was drawn p with 10mm border all round, then divided into six equal columns of 43mm with 4mm gutters between them.
Again text and image was cut from magazines, this time a wider range of magazines could be used if desired. This time I decided to cut into pieces some expensive magazines such us GQ and Vanity Fair and pasted them down strictly adhering to the grid. Typefaces that are used in these magazines are very different, and I thought it would work out very well to produce two different pages that were not required to be linked between each other.
