Travel Layout Designs

These are a few examples of travel layouts for a magazine or newspaper.

All images or graphics I made or took myself. I used InDesign to create the pages and Photoshop to edit any photos and create the graphics.

This design is based off the Sunday Times ‘Great British Breaks’ articles. This one also has the full copy in the layout. The graphic at the bottom I designed using photoshop and was in the style of The Sunday Times maps.

Chester Final

These next few are designed and use filler text for the story.

The first is form Albufeira, Portugal. The key was to have the beautiful relaxing beach as the focal point and give an overview of the feel of the town using the side bar of different images.

Derwentwater piece focus is the panorama shot at the bottom. Using such a large image can mean that the text is lost through the picture so using two columns and making the text very blocky mean that the text is not lost in the image.

Derwent Water

This DPS of Venice I feel would be a typical weekend travel piece with the entire right hand page being full of photos to give a good fell for the place and the left hand page being full with text.

Features Spread

So this is the two page spread I made for my Feature Writing Class in my second year of University.

The style of the double page is supposed to look like a real local newspaper. I decided on the Chester Chronicle as this was a newspaper that is local and features a range of topics.

The two sides to the spread had to be thematically the same so I chose two charities that are working in and around Chester; the first is the food bank that is part of the Tinsel Trust and the second is charity that takes poor children from Belarus and Ukraine to England for a month each year.

The content of the articles cannot be shown as I do not have permission from the people I interviewed however can be available on request.

PDF and photos are available. The spread was produced from scratch using InDesign. Photos were edited in Adobe Photoshop.
