layout and typography

This magazine layout was created in a project lead by Gerald Christ. 

What does a magazine layout need to work and look well? Which Fonts work together? How do text and pictures communicate with each other? How do I catch the attention of the reader? What rolle are values and contrasts playing?

These and many other questions I asked myself during the project. They resulted in a cover and two double pages for the fictional Magazine " Das Magazin"

text: "Ein Hoch auf die Freiheit" by Rainer Hank
