Respawn Magazine

The style and feel for this magazine comes from the idea of fragments or pieces of a puzzle. Parts of an image are shattered in the contents spread and the theme is carried through to the ‘Art of Portal 2’ spread which places separate images inside fragments.

The title - ‘Respawn’ - is a gaming term, it is the recreation of a character after it’s demise or death. I used Eurostile - a very square typeface to reflect 8-bit graphics and TV or computer screens - for titles and subtitles. The way I have separated this magazine from it’s competitors is space. The content isn’t so cramped and the overall layout is much easier for reading and enjoying the articles. I would say the target audience is a mature gamer - roughly 21-30 male and female.
