I decided to create a simple, one-page, photo-centric layout with a few images taken thus far into the early Minnesota summer months. Lawn mowing, post-game Dairy Queen runs, dips in our backyard pool… oh, and red wine, too. Just a few shots that remind me of my family's life in summer.
This is a fully digital page, and I will send it to print on my Photosmart 8750 and pop it into my All About Us family album.
TECHNICAL NOTES: This page was created using Photoshop CS5.
DESIGN NOTES: This design features a strong sense of unity, as all of the elements are connected in the space. There is repetition of photo sizes within the grid of images and there is an equal amount of white space in and around the images. The yellow is also repeated across the layout, another design convention that creates a sense of unity in the design. Type contrast is seen in the title. Pairing a big word with a small lead in creates a nice visual tension.
