Designing for Print
Project 4 – A Manifesto
â€¢ Create a 16-page (minimum size) booklet showing the ability to create in â€œReader
Spreadsâ€, and then output to â€œPrinter Spreadsâ€ for final presentation.
â€¢ Using the given text, design a booklet. Create it in â€œReader Spreadsâ€, which is
basically how you would look at things normally. Set up each page as a page in
InDesign, not a whole spread as a page.
â€¢ Use the Bruce Mau Manifesto text – the WHOLE text, not just parts.
â€¢ The booklet should have a front cover, back cover, and inside pages.
The total of 16 pages includes the cover.
â€¢ After creating the booklet like this, you will use InDesignâ€™s â€œPrint Bookletâ€ feature to
convert the pages into â€œPrinter Spreadsâ€, which is how they would need to be to be
output correctly for printing.
â€¢ Use typography, obviously. Imagery is optional.
However, you must still exhibit good, solid design skills. Your grade will be
based on both technical accomplishment and visual interest.
â€¢ Minimum Final Size: 4â€ x 4â€ pagesâ€”this is the MINIMUM size (8â€ x 4â€ spreads).
Feel free to use any other size of page if it works as a design element.
Colors: CMYK process 4/4 (Full-color on both sides of the paper)
Something to think about: you donâ€™t have to use white paper.
