In January issue of BMN there were two main changes to layouts; the front covers and the people page.
There were discussions between the editorial and sale team about what feature need to be included. There were multiple drafts for all of the pages, using InDesign, to make sure that they were fit for purpose.
The front cover had three major changes: the ads would change (two ads on the top of the page and the bottom strip to remove the bleed), the amount of copy would be reduced on the front two stories, and the contents would be vertical.
Using this brief I created four different designs with the one final design being published the next available month.
The design for the people page was to make the whole design more minimal and easier to both read and put content in. A simple brief that I made to be successful design.
