Today’s RECREATE IT comes from one of my favorite + new magazines out there, Wayfare. They’re a travel magazine, which obviously helps satisfy the little travel bug in me … for now. Here’s the thing about their spreads : alignment is spot on.
Often times, you’ll find that they use their strong imagery to help guide where type sits on the page. In this case, they fit their spread’s paragraph in the crook of the centered chair, which makes everything a little off kilter and perfect. In my example, you can see that I used the pole to left align my text, and then vertically centered the two lines between what was above and below them. There’s always little hints here and there to help you decide where to place text, you just have to look!
