We ended last week by working with Illustrator's Shape Builder tool and many of you had ah-hah moments as a result. We're going to continue to use this Illustrator tool this week with a new project that we'll be working with in InDesign.
InDesign has undergone quite a few changes because of how publishing has moved towards different medias beyond the printed page. The designed page can now have interactivity, animations and motion never before possible with paper and ink. The advent of digital readers allow us to use motion in our designs. That will be our focus this week. This web page explains some of the new features that allow InDesign to do basic animation work.
The finished project that you will be creating this week will be a choice between an animated cover of your favorite book or a poster design of a favorite movie.
Here are the steps we'll be following for this project:
