Don't you just love when a design just comes together after struggling with the concept for a few days? After finding out that my local library offers access to digital magazines, I finally decided to flip through one and simply fell in love. Design, specifically fonts and creative layouts, are near and dear to my heart--I must have been a graphic designer in another life.
Shortly after my digital magazine experience, David Anderson posted an Articulate E-Learning Heroes Challenge on digital magazine layouts. *SWOON* The hard part was figuring out how I wanted to put together my own layout. When faced with designing a course, I usually find inspiration from templates, the Articulate community challenges, pinterest, or now digital/print magazines. But this time, I kind of wanted to find a layout that just worked with my eye.
I set out to find elements that would go into my magazine layout. First, a little inspiration from holiday magazine reading:
When David Anderson tasked the Articulate community with designing an elearning interaction using Pantone's 2015 color of the year, I jumped on it. While many do not like the color choice, I happen to be the opposite. I LOVE this color. However, it must be said that I do not love the color swatch, I love this color in images, on people, and in food, etc.
After struggling for a while to figure out how I wanted to design my layout, I remembered digital magazine layouts I screen captured for future inspiration from National Geographic Traveler.
