Symmetrical balance

It is symmetrical because there are the same amount of stories on either side and also the women is in the middle of the page which is also very symmetrical, the only thing that is now symmetrical in the front cover is the models hair which is only on one side of the page.

Asymmetrical balance

This is asymmetrical (informal) balance because there is more on the left side that is bigger (headlines) compared to the smaller model on the right. They make it balanced because the model is looking towards the right that addresses the reader to look over there. 

This is asymmetrical by colour because there is the same amount of black and yellow on the left side compared to the right side. Also the white is asymmetrical on either side and also the title 'Vibe' is white at the top of the front cover and the word 'unstoppable' is white and they are opposite making them asymmetrical.

This is asymmetrical by shape because Oprah's hair is very detailed making it very intricate compared to the other items on the front cover, therefore her hair is the focus point on the page.

This is asymmetrical by position because there is a larger item on the right, the model,  and many other smaller items on the left side of the page, it is balanced because the  the writing 'M2' balances the side of the head and also the text below the title balances with body.

This is asymmetrical by position because there is a larger item in the middle, therefore it is balanced out by all the smaller text items around the model, making it balanced.

This is a symmetrical by texture because the top and skirt is very detailed and has a lot of texture compared to the non-textured yellow background.

This is asymmetrical by eye direction because she is eating the chocolate and looking at the camera presenting a direct mode of address so the reader instantly looks at the model and what she is doing.

This has radial balance because all the titles and coupons evenly spread out around the models head, they radiate from the centre which is the models head.

This is asymmetrical by value because the large amount of blue on the models dress is balanced by the orange and black font colour.


Really good piece of work with the right amount of detail and analysis. Well Done.
