I created cover designs and layouts for ICNA’s Noor Magazine. The client provided me with stock photos, article titles and edition titles.
I used Adobe Photoshop to edit photography and create artistic designs for the edition titles. I also used Adobe InDesign and Illustrator for print layout.
In the past, Noor Magazine followed an unconventional, centered format for cover layouts:
After a few months of working for Noor, I approached the editors with ideas to update the cover designs. After pitching my ideas and demonstrating how the magazine might look with new alignments and a updated title, the editors agreed to use my proposed design changes for the following issue.
The new style that I pitched (displayed in the photos below) was adopted for all future cover designs. Editors gave me feedback that this re-branding of Noor was well received by readers around the country and helped give the magazine a great updated look.
