A Magazine Spread Design For About Berlin 3, Formed As A Crossword Puzzle Game
About the Project
The challenge was to make my intention clear to the reader as About Berlin 3 is a student magazine featuring regular spreads. The final result has successfully created a relationship between both pages through similarity and symmetry.
This spread aims to educate the reader about Berliner Kindl, a beer brewery based in Neukölln, Berlin in an unconventional and engaging way. Each text on the left corresponds with a question and an answer field on the right, selected letters then create a “Secret Word”.
The informative page of the spread
The playful page of the spread
These two previous concepts show the evolution of different thought processes.
This project has taught me to always stay open to inspiration even in the latter stages of the design process and prevent locking in on an idea from the beginning.
