Layout Liberation

Layout Liberation - student project

I really needed to up my Procreate game and this excellent class has really helped build my confidence. As well as saving me a ton of time designing layouts, it will also save a huge amount of paper, as I seem to go through reams during the design process!

I'm pleased with the overall results, although will still spend more time tweaking (particularly the last word in the second line needs reworking). Thanks for a great class Molly! I learned so much and will definitely be utilising my iPad more from now on!
