Organizing Form and Content

Design Problem 1

Working in Illustrator, InDesign, or another page layout program, draw nine squares on a page.

2. Divide each square into nine more squares.

3. Fill in the nine square with color to create different compositions within the same structure. Use color to suggest overlapping and intersecting forms.

4. Repeat the exercise, using the nine–square grids to layout boxes representing text and image. Imagine each gridded box as a page in a publication. Create variation from page to page.
