editorial practice

CHOSEN ARTICLE (from Elle magazine):

PLANNING (4 initial ideas)


The article is about a woman seeking advice from various 'love coaches' so I decided as a quick exercise to work on the idea of some kind of instructional diagram (perhaps highlighting a little the absurdity of trying to teach someone how to 'fall in love' and applying a sort of rational science to matters of the heart..) I quite like the finished image but there are some problems with it a) it's not very clear what it's supposed to be (so perhaps failing on the instructional part) and b) it looks like a diagram from a children's book rather than something for a women's magazine.
