Thistle Creek Liqueurs: A Catalogue
The goal of this project was to demonstrate an understanding of the design programs and graphic design concepts acquired over the course of the publishing software class. Creating a holiday catalogue for a fictional handcrafted liqueur company allowed me to work with many different page layouts in the same document, accommodating elements including an invitation, recipes, a menu, and an article on the origin of the dirty martini. Each offered its own technical and design challenges, and allowed me to refine my skills in several programs:
- Adobe Photoshop was used to edit the photos, including the removal of text on one image and color adjustments on several others. Because the project is image heavy, I gained a good understanding of how to work with image files.
- The star, holly leaf, and martini glass motifs were created in Adobe Illustrator.
- The document itself was put together in Adobe Indesign. This was my first experience making extensive use of paragraph styes, and it provided a foundation for understanding how styles in general can be applied and sparked a later interest in CSS.
