Vue project 1007

The color of the newsprint is your friend.

A great publicity photo to work with. I put the subject on a white background. To give the photo more punch, I downplayed the headline and logo type.

Hey, it says "Diva" and "Full Frontal" right there in the headline, so I put a tint on the subject's lips and nipples. I'm playing along. I also made the black and white photo just black -- no four-color tint. It's sharper that way and the red tint jumps out better.

(I took the original photo off the Vue Weekly website, so my mock-up pops more than usual.)

This logo treatment is very plain. But I think it could work.

 Update: I've put a more realistic newsprint background on my design.
