A design problem by Ellen Lupton, from Graphic Design: The New Basics (2008):
- Create a spread in a two-page document. Each page is 7.5 x 7.5 inches.
- Devise a weekly calendar system that divides each page into seven days. Use lines, shapes, and typography to mark and identify the space. Leave space for a user to write down notes and appointments.
- Think creatively about the underlying problem. The rhythm and structure of the grid can be vertical or horizontal, regular or irregular, rectilinear or diagonal.
