Draft 2! I think this one looks better. I changed my “picture frames” to be backgrounds instead of frames, extended the one to the bottom of the page, and outlined the ulu in black to make it stand out less.
Hello everyone! I think I did this assignment right. I tried going by the requirements laid out in the assignment folder but this took me quite a long time to do, between having a 19-month-old crawling on my lap and wanting to play with every pen I have on my desk to normal responsibilities of a housewife and mother of three…. yes, this took a long time!
I chose to do a flyer for a fake course on Damascus steel. I think I might go back later and see if I can fit in some more informational text about what would be taught at the class, but for real people interested in Damascus this flyer would be a hit, I think. I really liked the idea of using a black background because it would look so nice with the photo I chose for the main focal point. That photo, by the way, is from a man on Flickr whom I asked permission to use his work. He said absolutely as long as I gave him credit, even though it’s a fake flyer. I added the copyright info to his two pictures (the third is mine).
I had A LOT of trouble with this assignment. Rather, I ran into a lot of trouble. I just couldn’t get InDesign to do everything I wanted it to do! And no amount of Googling my issues helped me sort through all the layers and frames I was using. God forbid I wanted to resize a frame and a photo AT THE SAME TIME!!!
If I could spend a few weeks working on this, setting it down, coming back to it, setting it down again, and coming back to it several times I think it could turn out really nice. As it is, I would appreciate and feedback and critiquing you guys can give me!
