Release Magazine was created to emphasize that travel is more than seeing famous tourist attractions. Travelling is adventure and learning, and it provides a sense of release from a busy life. The main focus of each spread is the imagery, with poems providing a secondary context to the emotion expressed in that image.
Through the use of poetry and imagery Release Magazine is able to showcase the emotion of each featured location in the issue. This is not a typical travel magazine, where the focus is the landmarks and tourist destinations. Instead, it is on what is around all of that, such as the scenery and smaller features of the place.
The colour of this issue is blue, to capture the feeling of peace and serenity. If I were to create more issues of Release Magazine, this focal colour would change along with the mood of the spaces being showcased.
