Assignment Thirty One: Cover for “Mobile Life”

Posted by with 4 Comments


OK… it is not the coolest magazine around, but this local startup has big plans… and they want you to shoot the cover for their inaugural issue.

This can be very very cool, you know. Do a great job and help them launch and maybe pick up a lot more work from them – covers and editorial.

The layout is a challenge (aren’t they all) but you are up to it.

“MobileLife” is a brand new approach to the smart phone press. They want to show how smart devices work well within our lives, not as a convenience, but a necessary part of how we live in these modern times.

Here is the cover mock up. You must shoot to this layout. There is no (unfortunately) alternative.


here is the PSD in layers. It is 100 DPI for smaller files and please resize it to the size we need for the website (700 or so pixels tall) after you assemble your image, flatten the file and “Save for Web”… at 60.

    I may not be able to make today’s critique as I’m getting ready for the Phoenix trip. For this week’s submission. I liked the idea of a bold graphic and went for the simplicity of a close-up. I have also posted a original image of the phone.
