The second half of the quarter has started and my new online class (Electronic Design) is very interesting and interactive! Our first project was to choose a company that we will work with for the next 5 weeks. I chose Squangles, my children’s illustration / Charlotte’s poetry business.
First project, mock up a design of the newsletter using a grid style of your choice.
First the requisite thumbnails of various newsletter styles/grids (portrait only). #11 was a popular vote from classmates, but I chose #15 because it was outside of my experience and thus, seemed more personally interesting.
Then choose one and turn it into a mockup on Illustrator. (I kept the mock up as black and white and just used a photo that was in my stash.) I think this grid could challenge me a bit, so I chose it.
This activity made me miss my newsletter… I want to get back to writing, designing, publishing it!!!
