Designing for kids…

… and kidults!

Being a parent (to two gorgeous beasties), it’s nice when you get the chance to design some pages tailored towards them. Plus, kids magazines often have a diversity of content ranging from teen TV shows like MI High to Roald Dahl book collections. It’s certainly a challenge to revert to a youthful mindset sometimes and hard not to just chuck stuff on the page. Being a parent helps – as you know what you kids like) and it’s a joy to make colourful, text light pages. It’s even better if you take a copy of the printed, finished magazine home and your layouts get blu-tacked to the wall that same day!
