After living in small town Forest City, Iowa, for my four years of college, I grew to love the place and appreciate the little details and beauties that are often overlooked.
For a final project in my senior Photojournalism class, I took pictures of what I felt captured the essence of small town life and compiled them, through Adobe InDesign, into a magazine layout/poster design showcasing the behind-the-scenes of Forest City life.
What I love about this project is the way I was able to incorporate the light blue color of the water tower into the background of my poster. I also used custom fonts that I felt made the layout more appealing and placed out my pictures in a way that drew attention to the man on the right first, then traveled through the remainder of the poster.
I also worked to get natural shots and use simple colors like black, white, and light blue, to ensure that the photographs and larger title text would be the main focus of the layout.
