Hi a.l.e.

  I don't know how i must use the baseline. I have to learn it.

Thanks. We'll study this.

Thanks GarryP. It seems much work. We don't have many time to do this magazine.

I'm not a.l.e, but can give some comments:)

I know how hard it is to see all these small details when you have been working with the layout, you almost always need input from others (I learned that when doing a magazine for a computer club a while ago). But I also know that a lot of things are about personal preference and intended "feel" about the publication, so don't take my comments as the truth:)

The text in the black strip at the top of the front page could be better aligned (that is probably a place where you do not want it aligned to the baseline grid but adjusted to be in the middle (visually) of the black strip).

For me it looks as if the red squares in the bottom part of the front page have a different position relative the baseline for the text.

In most typography you use either an extra line between paragraphs OR a first line indent. Using both is usually considered bad practice.

In the spread pages 6-7, I would have made the caption for the big image on the lower part of page 7 align with the caption for the image on page 6 (and I would have used baseline grid to also make them aligned with the last line of text on page 6). Most often you want the tops of top items aligned and the bottoms of bottom items aligned to avoid the "feeling" of an incomplete page.

That's why you should have a grid of guides to align your content to.


In some places the centering of the photo captions look a bit misplaced. I have learned to try to avoid centering, because often it creates problems (multi line centered text can become extremely hard to read). It has it's uses, but often a similar effect can be achieved in other ways.
