The first page layout, I did a 3x3 grid, I then chose to take a picture of Miley Cyrus
from Google images and put the copy around. The image I put on the right hand
side which is equal to 2 columns. I think the gutter space on this layout is just the
right amount as its enough to separate the text up but not too big to make it look
weird. I think the amount of white space is the right amount as well because the
page looks full but not too busy.
This layout is a 5x4 grid. For this one I decided to make the picture equal to 3
columns and position it at the top left. I think added the copy going down
the other 4 columns with a drop capital at the start to make it look more
interesting as otherwise its just a load of text that looks pretty boring.
This layout is a 6x3 grid, instead of having the text just down a single
column, I decided to put the copy across three, I think this way look
better as it makes the text easier to read and easier to follow. The
image I chose to change to black and white because I think it looked
better and also made the image equal to four columns and across the
top in the middle.
4. This grid is 3x3 and is for the extension task. I decided to get the images from Google as I knew they would be high quality
I then changed them to black and white and cropped them down in Photoshop, I then placed them all down the left hand
side overlapping each other a bit. I then chose to put the text down the right hand side, with images of her tattoos behind
the text, to do this I put them onto photograph to crop them down then placed them onto the page on InDesign and
changed the transparency until I was happy with them. I added a drop capital at the start and also added a pull quote
which I made larger and more italic than the rest of the text. I made the heading, again on Photoshop, however now I
don’t really like it. I also decided to change the space between the sentences in the second paragraph down near the
bottom and also make some of the copy at the top slightly bolder. I think out of all four layouts, I like this one better
because it looks more interesting and there is more to look at.
