Classic vs. Contemporary

‘Classic’  Layout

‘Contemporary’ Layout

For the ‘classic’ looking page layout, i chose the Bible. I think that the Bible looks classic due to its layout, typography, visual hierarchy and the composition. Over the past decades since the Bible was written, its layout has not changed much. All bibles are formatted similarly, if not, identically. The typography may have changed, however; all common bibles share similar or same fonts just like its layout. The same follows for its visual hierarchy and its composition. For the ‘contemporary’ looking page layout, i chose a page from a fashion magazine. I think that the fashion magazine layouts look contemporary due to its playful layout, typography that still follows visual hierarchy. A fashion magazine’s layout’s composition may be different based on its content.
