So after designing the flat layouts yesterday, I spent last night putting together quick layouts in InDesign just using boxes and placeholder text, to see how each of the layouts would work onscreen.
We have chose to use different fonts, rather than the usual Enriquetta, as it doesn’t really work as a headline font onscreen. Also it doesn’t really fit in with the style of the app that we are working towards.
We have chosen to use the Cassannet family of fonts and Intro as the headline fonts. We will our usual Gill Sans Light as our body fonts; and also Miso as an alternative.
I think that it is looking really good so far, and designing for iPad is a really good size to work at. Now we need to work on the actual content and begin to add image, text and the icons that George has designed.
