New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I need a very thorough critique of the following piece..
Here is the criteria for the assignment:
+ Format (7.5 by 10.5 inches)
+ It all must fit on a spread
+ About six images (I have 5)
+ It should represent a possible layout for an entire textbook about typography/type designers/type history
What I would like feedback on:
+ Use of negative/white space (is there enough? Is it interesting?
+ Type color (and I am not talking about the red)
+ Relevance and arrangement of images
+ Use of footnotes, image captions and other secondary test
+ General typographic style/following rules, appropriate glyphs, etc
Some info about my design:
+ its on a 5 column grid.
+ Text is set 9/13 x 13p4 (strange measure, I know) Scala and Scala Sans
Oh, and I have thick skin. Please don't hold back. Prompt feedback would be excellent. (Sorry about the second thread, I just need some feedback quickly)
