To learn design principles through exploration and experimentation. To learn visual grammar by making abstract compositions. To practice thumbnail sketching. To be introduced to Adobe Illustrator and InDesign's layout tools.
Rhythm is an optional design principle, to be applied only when it is appropriate. In general, there are four types of rhythm: legato, staccato, alternating and progressive. Rhythm is most often associated with music and dance. In fact legato (connecting and slowing) and staccato (contrasting and abrupt) are musical terms. Each type of rhythm carries with it a certain "mood." One can identify rhythm easily because rhythm requires repetition, often in a predictable pattern (such as alternating or progressive). Rhythm can be very powerful in creating a sensation of motion, temperature, even sound.

Note: When importing images into InDesign, it is preferable to link to the image (as opposed to embedding the image). This will keep the InDesign file size reasonable and allow easy updating should the linked file change. Therefore, please keep all linked images in the same folder as the original InDesign file to avoid broken links. When moving files, move the entire folder (never move just the InDesign file).
