Sheet Design Layout
Presentation Design Layout
01. Display
Single illustration
All elements fit perfectly with each other, creating visual harmony and a sense of balance and closure
(Text and images are placed on the grid giving the layout a complete form and a sense of order, various sizes introduce a visual hierarchy)
Horizontal layout
Vertical layout
Boxy layout
Strong Focus on visual clarity and typography
Individuality (each section has design but the overall is consistent)
Background image can help a layout stand out
Use of negative space and white space – individual elements are clearly separated and properly aligned
Booklet Design Layout
Which offers a certain degree of freedom because it is not a thesis structure; this is however is not an abstract notion its abstraction is only for simplicity of conveying information. But some elements have to be clear (title, drawings, scale)
Colour Palette
Text Style
(rhythm, mechanism of communication, meditate on its multiple layers of meaning - a name, a place, an event, a truth, an accusation, a historical record, etc...)
Visual Arts
Computer Generated
All in an aim to create visual power !

Don't forget the calm in the oral presentation !
