For the fourth week’s assignment, we have one worksheet and one creative project:

For the worksheet, go through and make tracking, kerning, and leading recommendations. Essentially, each block of text will have one or two things wrong with it, and I want you to identify what those are and suggest how to fix them.

Here’s the worksheet.

For the creative assignment: Create two designs, one that has a light grey page color and one that has a darker grey page color. You can do this in Microsoft Word, but I recommend getting familiar with Adobe InDesign or Illustrator, as these are the industry standards.

This task is meant to test your ability to make counter space, letter space, and line space choices to create a desired page color.

Feel free to use placeholder text, which you can generate in Adobe programs under Type > Fill with Placeholder text, or online here.
