Welcome, my name is Jackson Beck. My interest in design first came around through my love of drawing from a young age and have ever since been in creative practice drawing and designing. I am currently studying Graphic Design at Newcastle college and really enjoying the course. This blog is a digital scrapbook of reflections of my own work and recording of influences from other artists.

This is my developed magazine design cover. I used some watercolour brushes in the background using blue and pink as i felt they represent the period and style which is the 70's and i also think they symbolise L.A well which is the location of the film. I scanned in my pencil study portrait and adjusted the colour curves and gradient map to give it a smoother texture which would look better on the shelf. I think the jacket could have been better i used a montage technique to build up the jacket but looking back now i realise it doesn't work. I am quite pleased with the look of the typography as i think it fits the composition well.
