► some layout do's & don'ts (google drive)
so there’s a club on campus called Science of Wellness, and they also run a science magazine decal.
earlier this semester i signed up to format the layout for one of their articles, and i asked them for an example of a previous issue so i could see what i’m working with.
as i flipped through the pages of the old issue, i saw a lot of pet peeves that i had about minute details, and my OCD tendencies to fix these small details made me create a slideshow to teach the other layout artists what NOT to do when drafting layouts, so that we could have a cleaner look that’s consistent throughout the magazine for this year’s issue.
anyway since i took the time to come up with 48~ slides at ass-o’-clock in the morning yesterday, i thought i’d share it outside of the 10 people doing layouts in this year’s group.
disclaimer: everything i know about layout formatting has been entirely self-taught, so don’t quote me on a lot of things in the slides. there might be things that are obvious to more experienced layout artists that i’ve missed, but these are just some of my pet peeves that i wanted to point out to the entire group.
