16-page book using InDesign.

Project 1 introduces common type vocabulary: Anatomy of type, variations, arrangement and spacing, as well as the basic page composition of industry standard publication software (InDesign)

Although this project is directly related to typography, students will choose a favorite performer, athlete, band, writer, etc, and will write a 1 paragraph short biography. This performer’s name and bio will become the actual content of the book.
