TREVOR BAYLIS: SKIP TO 18:00 MINUTES
Another task I was set today, was to create 30 quick layout templates using the things I have learnt. Paragraph styles help create and change many layouts quickly by setting the sizes and typeface for certain text boxes. So I was able to create these layouts more easily as could change many text boxes at once.
Today in our second introduction with indesign we created new doc with 12 columns and leant about how to set page numbers and guide lines on a a-master page. And then got given text and two images and was ask to create an interesting poster for a lost dog.
The first poster we could use any amount of different typeface, whereas the second we could only use the franklin gothic typeface. However I found my second one overall looks more effective because even though I was limited to one typeface I think the layout has more structure even though with my first poster the typeface suits the poster.
With this layout double page spread
the small triangle images folding out diagonally down the page creates the direction of the way its read. And the use of a lot of white space around creates a focus on the images and text.
