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.
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.
