For comparing whether layout is good or bad, I brought some Japanese magazines’ cover pages.
Here are some bad layouts.
These pictures are bad layout.
-too many words and information
-too many stuffs on one cover page
-some colors are very hard to read
These are good layout.
-less information and words
-easier to read
-one object on a cover page
I thought that Japanese magazines have more words and information compared with American magazines.
It could be because Japanese people are more neat, but for the layout, I feel that simpler is better and there are many too much information cover pages in Japan.
I did not notice this fact, so it was very good to think and compare between Japanese and American magazines.
