I have finally been able to move my head around my front page…! It’s taken almost the entire teaching period but I have gathered some ideas on page layouts from my previous blog, I sketched and sketched but for some reason it seems to work better on the computer, so here is a snap shot of where my booklet is up to:
The first image below is how I see my front cover and contents page
Image number two is how I see another layout
The below is how I would place an image across a double page.
I am trying to keep a similar layout across all pages, they are starting at the same/similar height, I will need to edit where the ‘Contents’ heading is, to ensure it maintains consistency throughout, which will hopefully lead it to be both aesthetically pleasing as well as easy to read, follow and understand.
All the image boxes will display an image which is relevant to the topic on that page, for example, if i am to be discussing colour, I would place an image of the colour wheel and identify the most appropriate way of selecting a colour palette for a readers eye etc.
Again, I am hoping that I am going in the right direction…..and am always open and willing for feedback on the layout of the booklet as well as the info i am planning on putting in there!
