the fight club’s return

To fully understand how I feel about downloading fonts — Metallic Slime (@LucySeven)

I used the Google font Lato for the design of my undergraduate class’ thesis catalogue. One of my studiomates had a copy of an OCADU graduating class catalogue, and I was a bit sad that I hadn’t seen it earlier. Nothing like learning how to use a program better by doing something major with it.

I have done layout for the campus paper with InDesign, but it’s not the same as doing something totally new.

This is probably the largest mock-up I’ve done to date…

In terms of printing, I’ve learned that just because you centered the work on an artboard and sent it to the printer, they won’t always print it that way. I sewed my vinyl banner yesterday; I was really nervous because I’ve only sewn small items and cosplay before, never an 8-foot banner. The original idea was to use velcro-tape and a dowel, but my professor suggested this instead.

Have to write a podcast this weekend, probably won’t be updating too much. The fourth-year show opening is Thursday at 5PM in East Campus Hall, so I’ll be there. If you’re in the area, you should too. XD
