Great Expectations

This short brief was to create a one page layout for the first page of Great Expectations, written by Charles Dickens. The reason behind it was so we could start thinking about text in terms of layout and what sort of things we need to include and be thinking about.

Great expectationsMe and my partner decided to have three columns as we felt the page would look a little more dynamic instead of having two, and looking a bit clumpy. We also agreed that the headline Great Expectations was too large to fit across two columns of body text, which is why we ended up using Chapter 1 as the main headline, and using Great expectations as the subheading.

Also by the way it is laid out, there is good negative space, meaning the reader has time to breathe visually speaking, whilst making it easier to read. The only downside to this design is that we forgot to include a call out which was one of the specified requirements of the brief.
