Use what you learned so far in the course, with an emphasis on what you learned during our practice on Monday, to design a newsletter from the text file that I will give you. Your design must be highly original with a professional appearance.
Create a 3-page newsletter. You will also design a nameplate/masthead for your newsletter.
I will teach one more skill that I forgot about on Monday. Also, you must be present in order to submit this assignment.
- Download recycle_newsletter.doc from here.
Although we practiced "FILE/Place" during class, it's okay for you to simply open the Word document and copy/paste from it. I think this makes it easier to maneuver.
Optional: An additional tip once you start your InDesign file is to create the "body style". Then Select All and apply your "body Style". You can style the "head style" later one by one.
- You must use Master Pages to create a cute design and insert the page number. Design the nameplate/masthead that is suitable for a newsletter that focuses on recycling and environmental sustainability.
- You must use Paragraph Styles.
- Include a Table of Contents to label the page numbers and article titles.
- Fill about 1/2 of a page with an infographic on recycling.
- Include occasional images as well InDesign design elements throughout your layout.
- I don’t believe you need any more specific instructions. Go ahead and finish your creative, professional, and original design.
Instructions to Submit:
Submit two copies -- the original InDesign version and a PDF file.
Since it's a class assignment, upload it to OAKS in a dropbox called "Newsletter Classwork."
