Advanced Desktop Publishing

These are works from my Advanced Desktop Publishing class. The assignments required that I follow the design principals listed below.


Newsletter Redesign

The assignment was to find a sample of a newsletter or other informational publication that I believed to be poorly designed. I was to write a short paragraph which listed that design's specific problems, create a storyboard, and design model. I chose the Tourism Office of Budapest, Hungary web site. (This site is no longer available.)
