Activism: Publishing workshop

This was a really useful workshop.
Seeing all of the processes of how to do a layout for a pamphlet made thing so much easier.
I knew that before you print or create a pamphlet there is a lot of steps that you have to do before.
I saw what my tutor did for the leaflet for Jeremy Tankard, and it was amazing.
The first thing he did was a really rough mockup of how would his leaflet would look like.

Three questions when planning a piece of Design:
Who is it for?
What is the purpose?
What is the budget?

What he introduced to us was how to create a flatplan!
What is a flatplan? It a way of visualising all the pages of a publication as small thumbnails. It is the equivalent of a story board for a film. A client might use it to structure their content, and a designer might use it to structure their design, particularly the space of the document.

Here are the pictures from my tutor’s work:

I had a task for this afternoon:
To create my own flatplan for my pamphlet in InDesign, I would have to have 16 pages including the front cover, inside front cover, back cover and inside back cover.
Here is what I have done:
