    Yes hello once again i am putting my work up to the wolves once again for all to see and review, this is the final design for my media studies coursework. The last image is the final design, the first ones are reminders of what i did prior.

    Nothing else will be changed to the design but any input will be put into my report, thanks again for your feedback.

    Some things have been kept you will notice nad some things have been dropped.

    Remembering comment about having less is more and keeping it simple, i feel i have KEPT it simple. If you do feel its to sparse then i did think this myself, but i didn't want to add more to the design. Anyway its finished with.

    O and i have tried to not "Strech" any images. And i created the last one with Adobe illustrator 9 since somebody told me to use that instead of Appleworks, i do think there is a difference imo.

    Wow, much better. Nice job! :D

    It almost looks real....I think removing the subcontents from a bordered rounded rectangle is a great improvement. Overall it doesn't look as crowded.

    Okay. I took a shot at your magazine ( I get paid to make magazine covers etc). I like the direction you are going with it.
    The final version is a huge improvement over the others. Just for kicks, here's what I got based of your idea and what it would like like from a real distributer.

    That is really sweet! It's kind of hard to believe you made those old ones.

    Thanks for modifying my final design, it shows everything and anything can be improved and one shouldn't rest so easily, however the work has been handed in. I can see still a huge improvement over mine. Your comments havn't discouraged me either, in fact i'm more eager to do something else in the future, i might even do a graphic design course next year, i dunno. I have a taste for it now.

    Thanks everyone for your comments.

    looks good... for a real professional look, try bleeding the visual or the copy (expand so it all doesnt fit on the page)

    just a thought :D

    BTW: the best way to learn is to reproduce other layouts... that is what i do when i am trying to learn how to do something new. not to the point of copyright infringement though :D
