Since I last spoke about my newest project, I have been negotiating the terms of the contract, but it is now all set, signed and posted. So we are ready to go!
The first thing I always ask, is for a set of full-size layouts to be set with type and printed out for me:
This way I know what text I have to work with on each page, and exactly how much space it is going to require. Of course, the position in not set at this stage - I will move the text around to fit the images I create. Nobody, including me, knows what they will look like yet!
I'm sure I'll feel better though, once I've got my teeth into it.
