Magazine Cover using InDesign

Posted on Oct 17, 2014 by Christel Wilkie Last Activity on Oct 17, 2014

This is a tutorial I developed for my year 11 class last year.  It gives them the opportunity to apply some of the great layout options available in InDesign to create a Magazine cover.   The theme for this magazine is Xtream Sports as my students were mainly teenage boys from 16-17 years old.  The theme could easily be modified to suit whatever interests your clients have.  Just change the assets or get them to source their own.   I have uploaded the step-by-step tutorial as well as the assets folder and working document, all zipped.

Making Text Fit

This is an excellent article with a list of suggestions and examples for what to do to make too much text fit into a space without sacrificing the integrity of your design.

Futurist Inspired Dancers

Posted on Sep 29, 2014 by Ashley Stroud Last Activity on Oct 15, 2014

This lesson was the result of a collaboration between my digital illustration program and the dance department at our performing and visual arts high school. Tied by the theme of the dance drama, The Grid, the Void, and the Sign, we took photographs of the dancers jumping, practiced gestural drawings during their rehearsal, and then composed digital artworks inspired by the Futurist art movement using geometric forms in repetition to show movement through space and time. The lesson covers these Adobe Photoshop skills: editing Camera RAW photographs, B&W adjustment, watercolor, pointalism, pencil drawing, woodcut effects, pattern making, selection tools, and layer masks.

Photoshop Collage

Posted on Sep 28, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Sep 28, 2014

I do this with my students every year and get good results. I select 8 photos- some stock, some that I have taken, and have the students create a photo using 5 of the photos. This is a culminating project where students are expected to use all of the Photoshop skills that they have used during the year. I insist that students make at least three different versions and save them using Layer Comps. I have the students turn-in .psd files which I check for the layer comps, layers, etc. The download contains instructions, rubrica list of vocabulary that students are expected to know, and several of the excellent Adobe .pdf "how to" files.
