Assignment 2: Not again!August 31, 2009
Yep, two more nasty little layouts. One you have done before – this time even better – and a new topic. Again, develop a concept and design towards communicating the necessary information in a way that speaks to the target audience. All done with flare! Remember, you have to get good at these nasty little black and white layouts before you get to do the big budget, glitzy and fun projects.
Same specs: 8.5 x 11, no bleed, one-color black. Work up an estimate, track your time and use the checklist of design elements and principles. These three things over time will become second nature and part of your creative/production process. Oh yeah, Use a frigg'n grid!!! You have to have a structure to build your design upon.
