So I first started to do research on the type of theme I wanted for my magazine and my website. And then from there I took it over to the type of pictures I wanted to take, the pictures that I did not want to take. And then from there I took it the way I took it over to do research on the way I wanted my magazine to look and the type of feeling I wanted my magazine to give to people. So, to start off my website, when you first look at it, it's very it's peach and green together. On top of it, is leaves and when I think of nature.

For my magazine ,I did get inspired by fitness magazines. However, I did challenge the conventions of it. For instance, typically, fitness magazines have a lot of taglines, whereas mine did not have as much.
