Our 2D project is coming to an end. Technical files are due in very soon. It has been an extremely useful workshop with lots of information on layouts to assist us on future projects.

I had never used Illustrator before and it was a challenge understanding how the programme worked and more specifically forming grids. The grid system was the format needed to assist us in producing layouts for our books. This process took time and once the grids were in place we had to be shown how to place photos and text.

I have found it difficult to work independently on this project as I have needed the support and guidance of Alexa when working on the computers. Because of this I have been unable to finish my book to standard that has been required.

I have found the information Alexa has provided as invaluable as it has highlighted to me the importance of good layout in my work.
