Grid Exercise: working with type

I suggest a little research/inspiration- Google or Bing image search magazine spreads.

Later in the process, I suggest printing out your project to 11 x 17 paper and cutting it down. Gauge the type size of the body copy- is it appropriate? The screen lies- get it on paper.

Submit your layout tonight by the end of class as a pdf file:
