As each of you develop the project you are excited about and help you meet your academic and creative goals, here are some examples of editorial design and page layout that I find expressive, beautiful or interesting. I have tried to present a range of styles to inspire your process and thinking. Hope it helps you!
“Rules” for an Opening Spread: 1) Keep it simple (unless it NEEDS to be complex!) 2) Include only(!): title and author and deck (optional?) 3) Make it a strong visual! make it pop! make it jump into your eyeballs! 4) Conceptual solution communicates the big idea of the article 5) Get reader excited about article with IDEAS!!! 6) Use white space, try asymmetry (asymmetric balance) and the rule of thirds to lay out your page.
