Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding text and design elements, part of Designing a Restaurant Menu.
So having added the logo to the folder, we are now going to add a couple of…other design elements.…I'm going to have the word slice slicing through these two panels on the…interior, and then having a repetition of that on the two panels on the exterior,…so that when folded, the words align with each other.…In addition to that, we're also going to add some basic text information, like…the address, and the opening times, the tagline, locally sourced happiness, and…what I am going to begin with, and that is some stripes that we're going to…create on the front panel using the Gridify tool.…
And I'll do this with a rectangle, turn on my guides, I'm going to go and start…at the top bleed guide of panel 1, and draw a rectangle that goes all the way to…the page edge, but deliberately, in this case, it does not go to the bleed.…I'm then going to divide that panel into five columns.…I'm just pressing my right arrow.…I have my mouse button depressed, by the way, while I'm doing this.…That's fine, except that that gives me a gutter space between those five columns.…
