[#2] InDesign Task 2 – Five Squares Ten Inches

Using InDesign I arranged five square/rectangle boxes inside a ten inch grid that (I hope!) have achieved compositional balance, tension and depth:

I included a variety of different type styles, which ranged from old style italic serifs to more geometric slab serifs. To create a unique contrast between the text boxes I decided to drastically alter each layer of text to make them a lot more distinct. The formatting of each was different, which included differing text flows, font sizes, colour, leading and kerning of text. Words within each text box were individually altered (i.e. words made larger and bold) to highlight them as well as changing their colour. The box on the mid-right hand side of the page is purposefully illegible in order to create a sort of desired artistic effect. Similarly the bottom right text box includes larger fonts which increased spacing, and bleeds out of the page rto reinforce the illusion of amplification and recession.
