Aerocraft

     This is a magazine cover that I titled as Aerocraft, the most ideal "fictional publication" for aircraft enthusiasts and future pilots, like myself.

     I was attending a special anniversary for a private airport a few years ago, which had a few aircraft on display. I took some photographs, and among the aircraft, there was a Beechcraft Hawker private jet that caught my interest. This particular photo I took was a closeup of the jet engine. I chose to put this image on the front cover because the fan intake would act as a way to "draw in" the interest of the target audience.

     On the bottom right corner of the cover is a photo of me sitting in the pilot's seat of a Metro Police helicopter, also on display. The photo was taken by the pilot himself.

     Lastly, on the bottom left corner is a barcode which I designed in the shape of an air traffic control tower and base station.

You could say I just let my creativity "take off!"

     For pet owners with a nostalgia for the exotic jungles or want to take a safari trip without leaving the living room, this magazine I created is - with no pun intended - a completely different animal.

     Peticular Animal, as opposed to "particular animal," takes readers and exotic pet owners on a guided safari trip. Packed with articles by nationally and internationally renowned zoologists, informative tips on choosing the right breed of birds, fish, reptiles and more.

     I designed this magazine cover with the exotic pet owner in mind, in an attempt to "blend in" with the right audience environment! Note: On the bottom left corner, I designed a bar code in the shape of a fish. The "bubbles" contain each letter of the (invalid) website. Remember, this is just something I created to demonstrate page layout purposes.
