For the front page of the media pack, I want to keep it looking professional, and I am deliberately keeping it simple. One thing that I took from Year 1 – Semester 1 was to not be afraid of using “white space”.
By allowing the white to come through the page, means that the user is not overawed with information from the start, and this is a choice that I feel add to the professionalism of the product.
For the front page I searched for images available within Creative Commons that can demonstrate radio, without choosing a comic style radio, which I have seen on other media packs.
Using Pixabay, I was able to search using the keyword radio, and around 800 images were found, and I selected one that symbolises radio waves. I deliberately chose that image, rather than one of a photo of a radio, as that may be an issue with photos from different locations across the world.
The image selected is available for use without attribution and as a PNG, which gives me greater flexibility within Photoshop.
