These are some examples of layout work I have completed using Adobe InDesign! These examples range from classwork to work that have gone into print for my extracurriculars. The order in which these projects are featured are shown below, so if one in particular interests you, please scroll until you see the title!
Soundscape > Table of Contents Exploration > Daily Pennsylvanian / 34th Street Magazine
This project involved finding a piece in a museum and developing both a soundscape and visual piece for it. While I am not presenting the sound environment, we were required to incorporate our written script, the name of the piece, the date the piece was discovered or made, and in which museum the piece is being held.
I decided to go with the Diadems of Puabi, which are currently housed in the Penn Museum. Ever since the diadems were excavated, there has been much speculation on their purpose, which is why I emphasized the words indicating the different theories people have about what the piece actually is. I also tried to evoke a sense of mystery by using just black and white.
Below are my first three iterations of the visual piece. I experimented with different font faces, layouts, image maskings, as well as colors.
Table of Contents Exercise
This simple exercise was an exploration of certain layout restrictions (eg, one font face, two font sizes, etc.) could be pushed to produce different ways of conveying the same information. In this case, the information we were using is the Table of Contents from Rudolf Arnheim's Visual Thinking (shown to the right).
The font I chose was Josefin Slab!
Below you will find the six different completed iterations. To find out what the different restrictions were, please hover over the image!
Daily Pennsylvanian / 34th Street Magazine
Below are some layouts that I completed for the printed publications of the Daily Pennsylvanian, the University of Pennsylvania's independent, student-run newspaper, and 34th Street Magazine, the University of Pennsylvania's arts and culture magazine.
