This is my latest version of my editorial design. Overall it got good feedback but there are a few changes that need to happen. The first is simply the headline needs to be bigger and bold to get a greater sense of hierarchy, and maybe change the colour of it to do so.
Moving on to the double page spread I should make the sub heading just easier on the eye because it is currently sitting unnaturally and looks slightly out of place. The only other edits I really have to make is the type detailing in the body text. By getting rid of the orphans, sorting out my rag and changing the M dashes. Otherwise I just have to be more playful so my design despite looking good looks less predictable.
On the more positive points I received my imagery is sorted and are all good uses of visual metaphors, all expanding on the point that time is disappearing for planet Earth. In addition the use of call outs along the cracks was commended as well but just to lay it out slightly differently so it is easier to read.
