For the second half of the pre-module task, we were asked to pick an editorial piece that we thought was not as visually pleasing.
I decided to pick this imagery based editorial, “Visual Dialogue-quarantine edition”. The title in itself is quite self-explanatory on the concept of the issue.
I thought that even thought it’s an editorial solely based on imagery, it could have done with a few elements of type, pattern, or even a few colours, to break up the use of plastic gloves. I felt like it was a lot of imagery, that whilst looking aesthetically pleasing and well-shot, was quite boring in some aspects, which is why some type or illustrations would have livened the editorial up a bit more.
However, for the concept, I love the idea of the editorial, and how it does document the daily life for some in quarantine. It definitely delivers what you would expect, especially from the title. The quality of the photos are crisp and clean, and the added texture through the scan-ins of the gloves is interesting.
