The Basics
This project is a to be a 17 x 11 page spread design that highlights the processes  of 2-3 pieces from your Foundation Design Book. The process work you are required to show are as follows:

  1. At least one of your final applied form layouts (text + image) 
  2. Any other composition of your choice from the Phase-3 Refinement stage or Phase-4
  3. A third process is OPTIONAL

This “Project 1.1: Process Portfolio Spread” is intended to be a modular grid-based design spread that can either serve as a landscape orientation poster or a future page for a printed portfolio. It does not have to have a gutter in the center, but you can design a page fold gutter into it if you want.

Requirements for Print, Mounting, and Presentation

You will need to print this 17″ x 11″ file on a good quality paper either on a laser or inkjet printer. You can have this work printed at Kinkos or other similar professional printer.

The work must be fixed to a black mat board with either no border or a border less than 2″ all the way around. The fixative sould be a spray fix adhesive (no glue sticks) that will not bleed through. Furthermore, the mounting must include a name tag on the back of the work and a piece of tracing paper that folds over the front of the board in full. Use an artist tape to connect the tracing paper to the back of the board so that it cleanly folds over the front to cover the entire work.
