Tips for designers: 1. Different sizes/orientations on each page—some text large, some small. 2. Specialty spreads: designed by students—periodically through the book. 3. Eye lines— 4. Bulls-eye—Pictures at the center, text is secondary, captions/sidebars, add background at the END, right before page submittal. 5. Font size consistency(captions b/w 7-8) (9-10 body copy) 6. Only have to submit 2 page spreads together—not sets of 16.


7. Go to gallery on the home page, drag and drop to your page. Might only want one module—just get it onto your page, then highlight that module, save as a click n go. 8. When designing, check the level of your lines by grabbing the ruler and dragging down 9. Select boxes, go to formatting, click “align top� and it will evenly align them. 10.
