Assignment 4 – cover photos

These are the 3 photos I chose for the background cover, 2 nice examples of multilingual and slightly worn signage on the tourist trial, and a shiny new shop sign.

Following on from the previous post about the covers… The guy putting up the shop sign was the obvious choice, because it’s the most interesting, it’s the right shape (portrait) and all the elements of the photo are conveniently positioned for a classic magazine cover layout.  The blue-grey tones of the photo, particularly the whites where good to push the image to the back, so it didn’t fight with the text too much – I think this works? Also, I chose to drop the title down the page to hang on the scaffolding.
