1c. Importing text

We were given all the text to included in a word document and had to import and incorporate the text into our designs. The text was then formatted using the tools in InDesign to best fit our poster style, making creative choices about size, weight, kerning etc

1d. Importing and formatting images

Using Photoshop we edited our photos ready to be used in our posters, making sure to save these versions as a copy. I also edited my image from inside InDesign when it was necessary.
