During the afternoon class on Aug. 1, 2011, the “InDesign for Yearbook” class learned the basic rules of design—contrast, repetition, alignment and proximity (CRAP).
The beginning and advanced students spent the majority of the class taking notes on the CRAP PowerPoint presentation which Lydia Cadena, InDesign for Yearbook teacher, and Sara-Beth O’Connor, InDesign coach, showed them. Afterwards, students began copying magazine layouts and then designing their own.
“I want to be able to make a spread without asking anyone any questions. I want to do it right,” said Katie Winkler, a beginning student from Lake Orion High School.
At the end of the workshop, the beginning students will walk away with one double-page spread of their own creation, and the advanced students will have two. By Danielle Raykhinshteyn / Upstart Staff
