BEFORE YOU LEAVE TODAY! Package your InDesign file I need your fonts, links (images), file... put it on the Google Drive and do not work on it until you get video feedback from me. If you want to work on it before I give you feedback DON’T :) DM me and I will look at it sooner than later.


Finish the chapters. Start looking at your book as a whole. How does the flow of information work, rhythm of the book. Are spreads becoming static? How can you use the content to create visual diagrams, call outs. Read the content. Call out content. Do no just make graphic design. Print 5 - 10 spreads for Monday so we can look at sizes etc.
