Project Description

298e5ea1

Design a Flyer or Poster!

I want you to use at least one of the three layout principles below. Use one or use all three! To design a simple poster or layout design. 

  • Grids
  • Blocking (Where you plan and block out your design before you begin the design process)
  • Golden Ratio

I also want you to use the other principles we went over including balance, proper white space and having a proper focal point. 

I would love to see a screenshot of your design process, if you used the grid system or blocking. Not required, but would be a great insight that helps explain your end design piece. 

Of course, have FUN with this project and hopefully it will be able to go into your design portfolio or give you some layout practice.
