InDesign Class Exercise 2 - Magazine Spread

Hi there and welcome to our class exercise. What we're gonna do is we've made this one together. Okay, I'm going to get you to rebuild the next spread. Okay, pages four and five. It uses the same layout but with different text and different copy now, like the last class exercise. The people that do this exercise are the types of people that end up doing really well in design and remembering this kind of stuff. So I've created a checklist like I did before. Here it is here. I've also got it in your exercise files. So if you check out your exercise files under newsletter, there's class exercise. There is the checklist. Okay. And also the images and text you're going to use. We've already imported the text in an earlier exercise. So you don't have to do that again. But there's the image of this handsome man here. Okay, so let's go through it quickly what you need to do. Okay, so you need to apply the nun to the master page for page four. That means on your pages panel here on this left ha...

nd spread. Okay, that is where we do not need this page number and this box. So I've gone through and applied the none to this. If you're thinking holy moly I don't remember doing that. You're allowed to cheat and go back to the videos. What you're not allowed to do is copy and paste from this page because that'd be too easy. We're learning. So next on our checklist is adding this cafe image case adit and crop it in. So it fits inside that page. I say right spread. I mean left spread. What I'd like you to do is check the effective PP. I. Of this and make sure it's or above. When you're finished. You don't have to do anything. I just want you to find out where it is. Check it, make sure it's 300 or around about that before you move on. I'd like you to add this box down here. Okay. It's similar to the one we did in the last exercise. So drop that in. I'd like you to put this text in here and in this case you're going to add the glyph. You can see this glyph here. This registered trademark. Find it under the glyphs panel and I want you to add it after bring your own laptop, add this one as well. Okay, I'd like you to steal the color from the image using the eyedropper tool. See this brown hair that came from a part of his arm. You can pick any color from the image to color this box here. I'd also like you to add a drop shadow to it. Okay, so that's the next thing in our list. Make sure there's a drop shadow applied to it. Now ligatures. This is this page. Remember we can pick fancier versions of this. I picked a fancy H. I've picked a different C. And a G. Go through sex it up with different luggage is up to you. Really what you do in this one. Okay. Next thing I want you to do is be able to fix one of the paragraph styles. It's this one here you'll notice it's different from what we were working earlier. This now is Roboto slab and it's the size of 17 point. Okay so change it. Redefined the style so that it applies to both pages. All right, that's it for paragraph styles. Next thing is this text needs to be in three columns. I don't mind which order you do these. Okay. Because mainly because I'm not there. Okay but you can do them in any order. Okay So this has to be three columns apply all the paragraph styles to it so it looks like this. I'd like you to remove any double spaces after the full stop or period. Remember there's two spaces on some of them. This one definitely has it. I'd like you to go and find and change and remove them and I want you to make sure there's no over set text by that. I mean see this little box here, it's clear and crisp. If I have too much text. Watch this. The textbooks not big enough. It overflows and there's gonna be problems, mainly we're missing part of our text. Okay so make sure that the text box is tall enough or wide enough that you can fit it all in there. The last one is I'd like you to make a pdf okay, exported. Make sure the crop marks are turned on and in this case I want you to turn on the spreads when it gets to exporting the pdf that way it'll export and these pages will be side by side when you're finished. I'd like you to send me the pdf depending on where you're watching this. It might be a link in the comments or it might be under the my project section or a screenshot. Just something I want to see what you've done. You might have flashed it up a little bit, you might have used different images, different colors, different fonds or you might have got it bang on an exact, I'll hold you accountable if nobody else will send me it. I can be found via lots of social media just to make sure or give you any tips or just to say nice work. High five. Okay, lovely people, Let's get into the next project where we work on a nice long document can be cool. I'll see you over there once you finished your homework, do your homework
