Using Adobe InDesign

To familiarise myself with the InDesign software I started by recreating posters. This gave me the opportunity to use the features that will be needed when creating my magazine. By using grids I could space my work correctly and this made recreating these posters a quick and easy task once I had practiced the technique a few times. This is based upon the work by the Swiss Graphic Designer Joseph Muller Brockmann who introduced the grid system.

I used different typefaces trying to accuratly match my work to the orriginals. I also used tryal and error to accuratly adjust the kurning, leading width and hight of each typface I used.
