7 Sins

As a group, we decided the best way to cover all of the topics that were to form the magazine was to base it around the 7 sins. This way it created a concept for us and would allow us to talk about the 7 sins in the 21st century. Our idea was to each pick a sin and a topic from the brief and write about it in today’s world and over exaggerate the topic. Thinking in a design format, we felt this would give us a grid to work with by having seven columns and also a colour scheme relating to each sin to inform the audience of the different articles within the magazine.

We looked into how we could relate the sins and the topics together –
