Englewood Animal Rescue Sanctuary of Englewood Florida contacted me about layout and design of a 12 month
calendar with member submitted photographs of their pets to be featured within the layout pages and entered
into a contest wherein the winners would receive their prize as determined by type of pet.
Creation of calendar utilizing Adobe Creative Suite
Illustrator for creating the vector images
In-Design for the layout development of the pages as per printer specs
Photoshop for optimization of submitted images
Acrobat for creation of pdfs for proofing
Project time – 4 weeks
The inner pages
Challenging to say the least. Grids and guides saved me on this one. Utilizing a table structure for the days of the month with a concise to the pixel precision to achieve page conformity and uniformity for final print. Then the images needed to be resampled to print resolution of 300 dpi minimum.
The numeric number of the pages, while at first glance seemingly easy, wasn’t. Dates change by day and month so individual months date numeric text needed to be placed precisely again within the tables cels to provide for uniformity. Then effects were applied across specified text and clipart added as called for. i.e. paw prints, etc. The E.A.R.S. logo went into appropriate empty date cels.
