  • Book Layout

    Aright so my professor assigned the most vague project on book layouts. We had to find a classical play's script, import it to in-design, and then design a "classical" book style layout with the entire script, and then create a modern style layout, something we came up with. Any ideas on what this guy is lookin for??? My guess would be analyzing size, leading, and margins from pages of old books and creating something similar but Im not sure. What do you think?? Now he didnt post any guidlines for this so I am lost!

      ^ true.

      Could you approach him and ask for clarification? That way if he tells you that he wants you to "just be creative with it", it's one thing, but if he does have something specific in mind he should be able to point you in the right direction.

      And welcome to the forum.

        I would suggest use of the golden proportion in determining your margins for the old-school design

        Just my two cents.
        It sounds like a great idea until you have to cut 200 felt circles with an 1/8" circular exacto knife ...

          As is, it looks ok.

          Just a few notes:

          There's too much contrast between the colors. The black overpowers the cyan.

          Given the size of the gorilla and text underneath...

          Thanks, HotButton!

          Near as I can tell, it's album art. My nephew raps for a hobby and he asked me to create some art for his mixtape. Mainly features his stuff through Sound Cloud. Promotional....

          Not sure what you're looking for with this. You've given us nothing in the way of reasons for bringing it into existence.
