Typography Design Optimum Magazine London Fashion Special Feature
Optimum Magazine Typography Design. Optimum magazine which circulates in France got in touch after seeing my detailed maps. The magazine featured a special UK issue for November 2016, and it features a section on London fashion.
The 9-page feature is accompanied by an illustrated typographic map of London, the map must also represent 5 London neighbourhoods, Soho, East End, Knightsbridge, Camden, and Kensington. On each neighbourhood, you will also find 5 fashion-related address which is the points of interest for each neighbourhood.
The illustration was drawn in small sections with the spot illustrations being drawn using a fine liner ink pen. Once the spot illustrations were positioned in place
I then started to compose the typography layout around the spot illustrations. I used a range of varying typefaces to illustrate the spot illustrations.
The headings were drawn large and I hand wrote in a smaller hand-rendered type copy around the spot illustrations and large heading text which framed the whole illustration.
