Layout 1 could work well to have an image of a napper on one side of the spread, and information organized on the other side with the headline and deck. Layout 2 would be great to create the an over-all mood of calmness with a full image in the background and text over it. Layout 3 is similar to layout 1, but I like addition of organizing informational text and/or images within the circle shapes.
Below are a few color palette ideas for my magazine story layout on Nap Like A Pro. Each one takes on a slightly different direction with regards to my theme of sleeping. However, they are all similar in being analogous color schemes, and they all create the same mood of relaxation and calmness.
Salubrious You is the magazine for today’s health conscious individual; featuring unique articles about all things related to being healthy. The word salubrious means healthy; promoting health and well-being. This is the perfect magazine for my layout on Nap Like a Pro.
Examples of similar publications that feature articles about sleep:
Naps are classified into 5 different types, depending on the length of time a person sleeps. The shortest nap, lasting 10 – 20 minutes, is known as a power nap. This is best for a quick recharge, and then getting back to work.
Napping can be beneficial, but it is best to keep it to 90 minutes or less. Set an alarm and try drinking slightly cooled coffee right before you nap. The caffeine won’t kick in until 20 minutes later, which will help you wake up more refreshed from your nap.
