- Basic Layout (i.e. Lines and Pictures in approximate position)
- Insert Text - I put in the appropriate text (or placeholders), but not in the final font, this is so I can tweak the layout accordingly and spot flaws or changes needed to be made.
- Insert the fonts I want to use and add colour to the text.
- Finish off all of the text and add last changes to layout.

I only recently put up a blog entry today but I've made some more steps forward with the contents page. The image shows how I generally go about creating the layout. I take a number of steps:
I've been working through my feature article, which I've just about finished and also started my contents page. Although I intend to create a post at the end showing the progression and how I constructed both the article and contents page step by step. But for now, heres a screen shot of where I'm at with the contents.

I've been working on the magazine all week and hope to upload a video showing the different stages of my progress through the development of the feature article pages. Unlike the way I presented the progress of the front cover, where I did a prezi powerpoint and was limited by the amount of space on each slide, I'm going to narrate through the progress, talking about the decisions I made, the changes that I had to do and what tools I used to achieve certain affects.

I think my feature article is coming along really well. I still have a while to go, but after I've finished the first double spread I should have the hang of it and be able to complete the second one in no time. The contents is fairly easy content-wise, because I don't need to come up with an entire article. However an authentic layout can be hard to replicate and thinking of all the band names and their article titles can be hard. I think I can be finished both sides of my feature article by next friday and be a good way through my contents page, if not finished as well.
