1st Assignment – Crank it out.August 28, 2009
So, you have two layouts to produce by Monday.
Specs: 8.5 x 11,no bleed, one color – black, laser printed. These are your production parameters. This is down and dirty and crank it out. For everything this semester, I expect good design regardless of whether it is a big project or small exercise. It is a design opportunity. Use a concept and utilize your knowledge and understanding of design principles and elements. Analyze your options for these two layouts. Work with all the knowledge and skills you have developed in the last year. Think of your process: Conceptual development, thumbnails, sketches, rough layout and tight comp. Remember structure and grids.
Monday is a "Client" presentation. What does that mean? We'll see on Monday who knows. It's nothing you haven't already had to do in previous classes. Be professional. Oh, I also want a blog post on this assignment. Give me something worth reading and looking at.
