Joshua McAdams’ Fav Magazine Cover & Mag name

leave a comment »

I really love this magazine cover, it looks very pleasing to the eye and I feel manages to capture and use white/grey space in new and better ways then usual.  I love the contrast from the bottom of the cover to the top, how the background fades to white and the main character of the game Assassin’s Creed II stands out alone in the white looking intense.  I also like how there is minimal text used, allowing the page to capture one main article but still mentioning 2 others at the top above the magazine name, above the white space and not distracting one’s eye from the image.  I also love how they mixed in grey into the white space, helping the page keep from looking bland.

As for my own personal magazine cover that I will be making, I feel that I will also make a video game magazine.  The name will be HUD.  HUD is a crucial part of many video games and stands for Head’s Up Display.
