This project showed me how much time it takes to put a simple article together. The amount of text adjustment and layout manipulation that went into this article clearly made it a nicer final product, but required a lot more effort than a non-designer would think.
This article was a three column layout with unusual margins and lots of graphics. I thought it was interesting that the yellow rectangles were colors found in the painting itself, which enhanced the design. It was fun to put all the pieces into the layout and see how everything worked together, which will ultimately help me when I design my own spreads.
