“Inklings” Newsletter

Here is another design project created using Adobe InDesign that I completed for an introductory course to graphic design. The focus was to create a short newsletter on any subject you wanted to. My newsletter was called “Inklings” – after the literary group associated with Oxford during the 1930s and 1940s of which my favorite author, J. R. R. Tolkien, was a part. As you will see, he had a heavy influence in the newsletter which was supposedly “for fans of mystery, superhero comics, adventure stories, science­-fiction and fantasy.” This was done in 2015, a rather melancholy year for said fans due to the deaths of author Terry Pratchett and actor Christopher Lee. Respect.

Design Concepts In Scripture

Here are two typography poster-type designs created using Adobe InDesign that I completed for an introductory course to graphic design. The focus was on design concepts in Scripture.

In the Scripture passage used above, repetition is the design principle that is used in a literary fashion. “Blessed are the/those” and “for theirs/they” is used eight times. I used a thick font (Enge Holzschrift) for the title and reference and a thin, easier-to-read font (DaunPenh) for the main text. The B’s are set off with a different font (Alex Brush). The white color shows up well on the blue background and I added a bit of design with the (White Diamond) line.

In the Scripture passage used above, repetition is the design principle that is used in a literary fashion. The word “love” is repeated six times. I used a thin, script font (Herr Von Muellerhoff) for the title and reference and a old-style serif font (Garamond-Normal) for the main text. Four of the “love” words are spotlighted with a different font (Cinzel Decorative). I used the colors red and white and added a ribbon heart and border to complete the design.
