This week we'll be continuing our work in Adobe InDesign. We'll be creating a calendar. A calendar is a basic table with rows and columns. Font choice will be important to get the mood you are trying to create. Please read the Knowledge Base material on Typography and use the link for Google Fonts to pair two fonts that will work for your design.
You will need anywhere between 12 to 16 photos for your calendar. You can use your own artwork (suggested) or other images if you prefer. I would recommend creating some sort of theme for your calendar as it will help in creating a coherent feel to the piece.
We'll be adding holidays to our calendars and you can personalize it by adding birthdays and other significant dates. If you're a person that believes every day is a holiday, you might want to check out this site.
A step-by-step guide with specifications can be downloaded here.
A folding dummy will be provided for you to create finished layouts for your booklet. Below are the setup windows for creating both styles of calendar.
