Above is my final entry with all the typos and catalogue cover layout.

There are something interesting about this.

First, I used Canva : https://www.canva.com/, which is a great tool to create something beatiful with images and texts. They have thousands ready templates for posters, magazine covers, Facebook cover.. and stuffs like that. I choose a simple magazine cover layout, called Bridal which was originally to promote food. I like its simplicity, bold and delicate layout that will suit best my rendering.

I tooked me 1 hour to figure out where to put the typos, scales, colors and what to write on the cover. After all, CANDLESTICK for the name of the magazine, ” THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS GIFT ” for the hilight text and a funny quote that I search on Google, keyword : ” candle funny quote “. I really like it : ” My girlfriend told me that if i bought her one more stupid gift then she would burn it. So.. I bought her a candle. ” See, everything can be Googled 😉

If you notice, all the texts have the connection in meanings, and they related to the subject of the cover. After all, it’s really all about the CANDLESTICK !

I am writing this at 12PM midnight and feelind tired but exciting that I can finish and share all the process making of this to you.

Hope you find something useful and have another point of view on how to accompish a client request, art direction and workflow.

Cheers !
