For my tablet design I decided to do an article about Alexandra “Aly” Raisman, Olympic gold medalist. After the entire world not believing that she could make it to the Olympics, she proved everyone wrong and won two medals, one gold and one bronze. I wanted to create a magazine that really embodied her accomplishments by making it extremely clean cut, and patriotic. I chose to make the colors red, white, and blue the main focus to show her devotion and pride that the United States had and felt for her. The title “Gold” came from her overall accomplishments that she achieved during her Olympic games.
This magazine is targeted to reach any audience or demographic. The Olympic games are enjoyable for anyone to watch so I wanted to make sure my tablet design was easy enough to navigate through for even the most beginner of iPad users. With navigational arrows on each page, jump pages and the classic play button on the video, any user with any computer knowledge will be able to understand my design and the content that is on it.
I decided to use the same typeface on the entire web design. However, I decided to play around with bolds and sizes for different parts of each page, but the ITC Serif Gothic std stayed constant throughout the project. I felt that it was so easy to read and clean cut that it would have been distracting to switch up the font.
I found my pictures from google from various photographers and sites; some were from Fanpop, Justjared, and Flickr. I also found my video from YouTube, and extreme sports channel.
