Exploring Relationships on the page:

  • Activity: Using the elements I provide, layout a tabloid-sized spread anyway you want (as long as it makes sense). Experiment with the concepts we explore in class: white space, forms, trapped space, proximity, separation. When you have completed a spread I will take a photograph of it. In class you should have time to design two different spreads.
