Arcturus - Outside Cover - Back and Front
Arcturus - Inside Cover - Front and Back
The Writing Department at Highline College publishes a book of student work each year with the title, “Arcturus”, after the name of a star in the Bootes constellation. The theme for 2012 was “blood”, to symbolize the writer’s phrase, “in order to be a great writer one must open a vein and let it bleed out”.
This is a sample template for the book, consisting of the cover and inside content, featuring many student poems, essays and artwork. Adobe Illustrator was used to create the bulk of the design, including the text, line art and cover drawings. Photoshop was used for the parchment background and inside art. The publication was organized and the layout was done using Adobe InDesign.
