I needed to come up with a last-minute sample for a possible client and needed to learn a bit more about Indesign so that I would be able to come up with a solid layout. In the past, I've done most of my work in Illustrator but a project like this should really be done with Indesign.

First I found some sources of inspiration.

Then I chose my column layout. I like 6 colums because it allows for many styles being that it is divisible by 3, 2 and 1. I then made it a master page.

Then I just played around with some layout ideas ( I would have sketched them, but this was not as abstract as some of my projects and I felt like I would be fine with tinkering). I also chose some fonts and paragraph styles. Selected a collection of images I wanted to display and put it all together. ( Pretty much did this all at the same time. I really like the idea of making layouts in Black in White first but I forgot about that step and just went with it but I will try to incorporate it into my procedure in the future).

With lack of a laser printer, I made due and printed some black and white copies for prototyping. 

This was a very helpful class. Thank you Anne!
