After researching the designer I went on to the design boom website to get a feel for the website and how I would use their design in my work. I had two main layout idea in mind it was just a case of taken them in to indesign and see what best fitted the designers.
The second Idea didn’t work because the image would have taken a whole page meaning the people with a lot of text wouldn’t have really fitted . So I went with my first idea with the image at the top over both pages.
