Layout and Editorial

Fri 25th Nov

Workshop/lecture recapping our knowledge on format and layout.

Task 1:

For the first task we had to deconstruct a piece of text into a correct line length, making sure everything else was in place too, e.g. kerning, tracking, etc

Task 2:

We then had to take parts from newspaper and produce a new layout – not focused on content – which must include text, heading and an image

Task 3:

Finally, we had to choose one design and rework it focusing on: form, size, colour, texture and maximising white space.

Final image:

(works a lot better landscape and is a lot easier to read in this layout)
