I wanted to make a front cover for my InDesign brand guidelines to do this I used Adobe Illustrator to make my front cover I did this by picking my favourite design of the twitter bird that I created.

Once I had the design I wanted I highlighted it all and used cmd c to copy it into InDesign I then used cmd v to add the front cover in.

I then added two more pages and created a contents page of what is going to be in my book.

This is how it looked when I selected preview. 

I also decided to add a blue top to my book to do this I used the shape tool and dragged over the top so that it created a border.

I wanted to add a page of the ideas I used for making my design I did this by explaining Rationale, Construction and Colour Treatment, this gave a simple but detailed enough idea of what I wanted my design to follow.



One thought on “Brand Guidelines

  1. Watch out for lowercase ‘I’. ‘Wanted’ has a typo error when discussing the preview stage.

    We could maybe look at turning the titles into the Twitter blue to allow them to standout? We will look at this in tomorrow’s session.
