For this project we’ve been split into teams of four, we’re creating an eBook of the Alice in Wonderland paperback. Although I haven’t read the book (and probably won’t) I’ve seen the movie and I’m going to be one of those people while I refuse to read more into it.
At the beginning of this project we were talking about creating an ‘EPUB’, I had no idea what this was but I’m pretty familiar now. The idea of formatting text for this book when I never had before was daunting but I was put onto a great team and ran into no troubles there.
Text formatting isn’t something I ever thought about tying in with Graphic Design, I was at some point torn between design and english so maybe if i gave this a chance I would actually like it.
So for this project we’re required to complete a fluid and fixed layout for the eBook, the difference being that one (fixed) will always stay in place and the other (fluid) moves when you adjust the size of the window.
As far as the style guide and everything goes that wasn’t difficult for the group to agree on, I also stick to timelines a lot better with a team but I think as everyone else probably does, working solo is much better for majority of the projects.
