i-on Designs by Visual Communication students from Anniesland College (Part 2)

Here is the second instalment of i-on designs by Visual Communication students from Anniesland College, to recap:

In November 2012, I was lucky enough to be invited to Anniesland College in Glasgow, to chat to the students about magazine and layout design as part of their first industry-focussed Arts Event Day. Unaware I had inspired the students with my presentation, I was delighted to attend their end of year exhibition and find they had designed spreads for i-on in their own style, while maintaining the ethos of the magazine. Further more, all the photography used was taken by the individual students. I was impressed. Tutor, Gillian Alexander, told me that the students were off to colleges and universities all over the UK to further their qualifications in art and design – good luck to you all. The spreads below are by Carly, George and Patrycja, two from each in that order plus one from Jack.

In Touch with Texture Fashion Shoot February 2010

One of my favourite opening double page spreads for a fashion feature, taken from i-on Edinburgh issue 50 February 2010. The combination of the model looking directly at the reader and the contrast of light and dark colours command the attention of any reader. Photographer: Andrew Edgecumbe;  art direction: Melissa Watson; hair & make up: Britta Dicke; stylist: Helen Boyle; model Rose @ Profile.
