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 moduleâ€”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 â€œalign topâ€? and it will evenly align them. 10.
