PEP 160 - Second Assignment - The Initial Design:
This print screen shows the beginning development of my second spread. I have decided to use the “Hanging Letters” font for the headline of this article, of which I am currently titling “Gone with the Wind” which further supports the subject matter of this narrative. At this moment, the paragraph of text at the bottom is only a simple ‘mock-up’ using the latin font to fill the text box in order to help me arrange the layout. 

PEP 160 - Second Assignment - The Initial Design:

This print screen shows the beginning development of my second spread. I have decided to use the “Hanging Letters” font for the headline of this article, of which I am currently titling “Gone with the Wind” which further supports the subject matter of this narrative. 

At this moment, the paragraph of text at the bottom is only a simple ‘mock-up’ using the latin font to fill the text box in order to help me arrange the layout. 

PEP 160 - Second Assignment - Font Research:

For the Fragile picture story I wanted to find a font that suited my subject matter as inspired by the article in Pig House Pictures very first publication. 

I simply searched for free font websites via several search engines which eventually provided me with a website known as ‘dafont’. After awhile of browsing through their categories I came across a font called “Hanging Letters”, where the designer has created a simplistic, stencil font which hangs from individual strings at the top of each letter. I think this would help to strengthen my second story and produce a more aesthetic layout for my audience. 

PEP 160 - Second Assignment - Research/Inspiration:

This article by Remy Boprey of Pig House Pictures covers a similar subject matter as Paragliding and Hot Air Ballooning share comparable tactics to fly (thermals, wind speed, direction, etc). I rather like the use of customised font to coincide with the subject matter of the story. I will definitely research into some fonts for my Paragliding story. 

The only criticism I can give this piece is the lack of text. For example Remy Boprey could have used the white space under the headline to write a short paragraph outlining the concept of his photographic story.

PEP160 - Second Assignment - Inspiration/Research:

The magazine “Cross Country” is considered to be one of the top end publications for the paragliding/sport market. This edition was kindly given to me by Tim Pilling, Secretary of the South Devon Hang gliding & Paragliding Club (S.D.H.P.C.). 

Unlike my first spread for the Tungsten mine, I might not directly caption the individual images and present them in a similar style to this magazine (see fig. 3). Rather than write the caption over the image, this institution has created a fantastic spread of photographs related to their story (fig. 2) and then captioned it using a small section of space, arrows and short, simple text. This approach produces a more modern aesthetic, which would definitely go in hand with the subject of my story and the intended audience/consumers. 

In addition to this, I have noticed that this institution uses a lot of bold, modern font styles… particularly for the headlines of each narrative (fig. 4).

PEP 160 - Second Assignment - Contact Sheet “Fragile”:

After successfully shooting the Touch & Fragile 5 picture stories, it’s finally time to go back to the drawing board for the next spread of the PEP160 module.

At this current time I am not sure which 5 picture story I want to publish as an editorial spread, therefore, I will begin by constructing layouts for each topic and pick my preferred piece. 

The images above are the two contact sheets from the Fragile assignment.

PEP 160 - First Assignment:

The final update to the proof reading and tidying of the general presentation of my spreads.

After sorting the alignment of my sentences and paragraphs, I noticed that the interior shot of Hemerdon mine wasn’t aligned at the bottom of the page with the text box on the opposite page. (See top & middle print screen)

The bottom print screen shows the new position of the image as you can see it has now been aligned with the grey text box on page 4.
