Last week I finished designing a 42-page four-color report for the NY City Labor Market Information Service, a division of the City University of New York. The project was mostly designed in InDesign CC 2015, with a number of tables created in Adobe Illustrator CC 2015. Additional tables and graphics were created directly in InDesign. All photographs were treated as fake-duotones in Photoshop, using a slick Action I downloaded somewhere ages ago. The principle typeface was FFScala, with heads, subs, and figure captions set in Univers, one of my personal favorites from Adrian Frutiger.


I mention this project because it was another successful fusion of four powerful Adobe apps (Acrobat provided the fourth wheel), all coming perfectly together. I'm proud of my fluency with these four applications and the ease with which I'm able to bring them together into a handsome and professional publication.
