The following (2) items are due:

(a11-01)  original file (.AI)

(a11-02)  Save a Copy… (.pdf)

Use the existing assignment 09 and overlay on assignment 10 layout as a basis for assignment 11 redlines. We will change some attributes, add dimensions and style notes.  Establish colors and styles for Text.

There are to be redlines and styles on a single artboard:

Use directions from Week 11 AI Newsletter Redlines

  • Full credit for the creation of all steps shown to completion
  • Change assignment 09 wireframe into a newsletter redline
  • Properly organized Layers panel
  • Appropriate dimensions noted
  • All styles noted; h1, h2, body, colors, etc.
  • Proper hierarchy of redline elements in the Layers panel
  • All objects named accordingly
  • Logically grouped items

Things to consider:

  1. The Lines, Dimensions and Notes should be in their own (properly named) Groups respectively, all on a properly named layer.
  2. A white-filled Rectangle, placed on the redlines layer, should be used to “white out” the Design layer. Do not adjust the transparency of the Design layer.
  3. Lines are to have a red stroke and be based on rectangles from the wireframe or an actual line. No other shapes are to be used.
  4. A center line indicator is required to denote a center-aligned design.
  5. Color swatches (20px square) are to be included in style list with RGB and #HEX color mix.
  6. Dimensions are to be filled red and be consistent in size (at least 14px). If denoting horizontal spacing, the text should run horizontally. If denoting vertical spacing, the text should run vertically (rotate 90˚).
  7. Notes are to be filled blue and be consistent in size (at least 14px).
  8. Font weight style is to be noted if the design style is other then the default style.
  9. An anchor (a:) normal and hover style is to be included.
