When It came to the zine, I had a hard time thinking of a format to begin with. Eventually I decided to go with the idea of a timeline, and with that timeline I wanted to play with the idea of clockwork.
The idea of using gears in the front cover intrigued me, and so I played with that.
I was intrigued by the idea of Fibonacci’s spiral and so attempted it in the cover through the use of gears.
The content within the zine itself consists of projects in chronological order in which photoshop played a part in.
The first spread consists of my very first project which both required and first introduced photoshop into my life. In here it talks about how Photoshop was completely new to me. I titled it the Morning Project to both follow the theme of the timeline. Every spread contains a translucent clock which is adjusted according to the time of each spread. The morning Spread is at 7am, non evolution is at 12 and evening finale is at 8pm.
The First Spread(1)
Each image is placed within a singe square frame, a theme here every spread contains the images in different shapes, just for a play in variety. Every spread also emphasises hierarchy, with a single enlarged image coupled with several smaller images. The dates were originally just placed at the corner of each spread. However with some advice, the dates were instead placed into separate shapes, different from the shapes depicted from the spread to provide a contrast.
The original spread was made with the idea of viewing age by page, which is why the images were adjusted according to the page they are in, instead of the spread. After which, they were adjusted to the template.

The final spread was what actually led to the general template for it all, and thus, little much was changed.
