Using a continual line drawing of a typewriter I did as the starting point, i looked at layering and opacity as possible ideas for the front cover of the zine, based around the theme of the resurgence in popularity of charity shops.

The first is an idea based around 3D interaction. I had bought many a pair of those crappy 3D glasses in charity shops purely for the fact I can't find them anywhere else. Making something appear three dimensional add an element of fun to a flat page.

The second draft focusses more on the passage of time, in terms of decay and trend. By fading out the illustration, the picture acquires a sort of romantic feel. The type, using Century Schoolbook ( a current favourite of mine), I employed the right range for title and justified the subheading, concentrating on the kerning and the unorthodox white space. It looks nice, naugh?
