This afternoon the Print Pathway began their Magazine Production module.
We learnt the basics of InDesign and designed magazine front covers.
Mine was "Mother Earth" and had an environmental theme.
History of Design:
Our tutor Malvin has been an artist and Deputy Art Editor.
He explained that newspaper design and magazine design are very different.
Pagemaker, developed in 1985 by Aldus Corporation, was the first design program.
Quark Express became the industry standard in 1986.
In 1999 InDesign was released and after a few years became the norm (dread phrase).
For £1000, InDesign comes with a licence and Acrobat, Illustrator and Photoshop. £1000 is the cost of Quark Express alone.
I've also got a booklet explaining typefaces and giving more info on Indesign CS3.
