Magazine Cover

                                     25 POINT ASSIGNMENT              

************GRADING RUBRIC**********

Here's the logo to add in the mag cover.  
Your job is to duplicate this ad. Make it look like this original. You should be able to find a picture very close to this on the net. Pay attention to the smallest details. Your grade will be based on accuracy.This is not a rush assignment. Take your time!

Start in Photoshop for fixing the pics.  The rest of the project is easier to do in AI.  Good luck.  

Use your skill in removing backgrounds for the castle.  Use similar fonts, colors and layout.  


  1. Magazine cover is 8.5 wide by 11 inches tall.  
  2. Use high resolution photo or photo's.
  3. Pay attention to the fonts and where they are on the page.
  4. Pay attention to the color used in the fonts.
  5. Can you get the lettering behind the castle top?
