Heat Magazine

I decided to change topic from Bentleys to Heat magazine as in lecture we had a discussion on what kind of topic we were doing and I realised the topic had to include something about design so i thought it would be much easier to do some kind of magazine.

I chose Heat magazine as it’s the magazine that I read so I am pretty use to it’s design and also I did know some background information about it. Once I found out that in 1999 Heat was released as a mens magazine I thought it would good to compare Heat from when it first released to today. As there were major changes of development and as the magazine turned into a womens magazine in 2000 the design and the idea of the magazine stayed the same throughout the years. I am also going to compare the change of website layout and talk about all of the other media Heat has dipped into.

So for the comparing design work I just looked at these images and compared :
