Hug your local graphic designer
I’ve been learning InDesign. If every anyone told you Photoshop had a learning curve, InDesign has been more of a sheer wall of rock in the rain.
I’m not complaining. By using InDesign I can see just how much of our world is preplanned. Fonts are a great example. How many of you ever stop to notice what font you’re reading, it’s color, placement on a surface, its spacing? Do you want to gleam the forethought that goes into our modern world — InDesign is a great tool to show you.
After two weeks of reading about fonts — Two weeks and nowhere near done — I started working on grids and — wow. All I can say is hug the next graphic designer you meet.
I thought I’d share what I made so far. It’s far from good but I’m proud of myself for working out the grids. 🙂
