Computer Aided Design (CAD): Cephalopod Magazine

A project that forced me to actually purchase more than one memory stick, the aim of this project was to learn and develop skills in Photoshop and InDesign. The brief was to create a magazine and accompanying promotional material based on a topic of my choice. I decided to create a spoof magazine based on cephalopods, for cephalopods. I’d just got round to reading H.P. Lovecraft’s ‘The Call of Cthulhu’ so this was my inspiration, although just wanting to draw things with tentacles had a large bearing on it, I won’t lie. In the end I created a 16-page magazine, two postcard designs and an A2 poster.

These are some of the illustrations from the magazine and postcards, I’ll have to see about loading some finished spreads on too.

Note: I apologise profusely for any bad puns in these images!
