Department Pages for Letters & Journals

Here is the first look at a sample of one of the department pages of the magazine Letters & Journals. I was so excited to see this when Kathy at DaisyMaeDesign sent it to me this week.

There will be 3-4 departments for articles on journals and 3-4 departments for articles on letter writing. This picture is a sample from one of the journal departments. In a later post I will show a sample of a Feature article.

I love the font she chose for the 'Journal Themes' heading as well as the placement for the title and the byline. I also like how she left a lot of white space so that the page is not crowded and tight.

One of my favorites things is how the background at the top of the page changes with the article background of the article. It's intoxicating thinking of all the stories that will be featured here.

I also am quite pleased with the red page number and the black magazine logo at the bottom of the page. They contrast each other nicely.

My next blog will be a sampling of the Letter department layout followed by a preview of the magazine's flag (or logo) for the cover.

It's beautiful, Jackie! I can't wait to see the full fledged magazine...IN PRINT! It's going to be so awesome. We need a magazine dedicated to these two subjects that are so near and dear to my heart. I love it that you've undertaken it. YAY!

And thanks for the Tweet follow, too.

Peace & Love,

Thanks for the feedback, Ladies! It's nice to know I'm not the only one totally excited about the concept of this magazine.
