18*24 in, perfect bound.
A big spread is folded and used as a cover.
Overall aesthetic form mimics a catalogue
*Comment: Critical matter should be overprinted on the cover.
(ex. Occupation Outlook Handbook 2010-2011)
Smaller page is introduced before the profession description:
Bigger sized title for occupation (ex: Administrative Service Managers) placed on top of the page.
Smaller sized title for main category (ex: Management) placed on the bottom of the page.
*Comment: Edges are small. (Thin margins)
Table starts on the left page and moves across to the right page.
*Comment: The number may be cut/lost when bound.
*May have to consider a heavier typeface weight. Could vary the size of the type. First sentence could be always bigger than rest of the paragraph to take away the monotony of the information.
*Create a moment where the category is identified with the placement of tabs on the margins.
*Consider playing with the text-boxes to give more life.
*Work on title labeling (Earnings, Nature of Work…)
*Play with gutter – running into gutter is okay, but we don’t want to read in the gutter.
*Dotted underline on page numbers – where are you bringing attention to? The distance between the descenders and the line itself (maybe control offset of the line? make it echo the typeface?)
