This image represents symmetry in a magazine cover. The image of this women is almost the same on both sides, this includes hair colour the black head band and also the makeup is the same colour. Moving down to her body the outfit she has on is positioned almost equally with the shoulders almost in the same on either side, along with the colour of the outfit and finnaly the V in the middle splitting the page equally down the middle where her face lies.
Asymmetrical by shape

This edition of Oprahs magazine shows the shape with her hair taking up one corner of the page. The shape is also like an O as you can see her face in the centre of a giant circle/her hair. This is also a representation of the O on the left of the magazine standing for Oprah.

Asymmetrical by Colour.

This is a edition of Gloria magazine that displays a nice use of colour that gives the magazine that point that sticks out. The red with the black background attracts the attention of the reader and displays brightness to the magazine that would otherwise look dull.
Also where the women in red is placed in the centre of the magazine it brightens up the entire cover.
Asymmetrical by Texture

This is a GQ magazine that with its vibrant array of colours and the texture that gives the who cover a canvas look, can draw in almost any audience, someone interested in art for example rather then lifestyle may pic this magazine up from the colours and textures, and again the canvas texture gives the magazine an authentic, unique look.

Asymmetrical by Value

This issue of Cosmopolitan shows a sense of Value when in terms of what the women looks like and the sexy hot pink colour in the background, the women in this image shows a dark being, this makes her stick out in a light background. She is also tanned, this shows her being the perfect tanned colour for women to bring out their "beauty". The perfect curves in her body also give great attraction. The work on her body, increases value in looks and sexuality bringing gaze upon her by many audiences.


This is a good start and you have the basics here. However, this is not finished as there are other types of balance to find...
