Message: It takes an unwavering conviction to repent.
Audience: Anyone who wants to repent (more likely LDS teenagers and adults)
Critiques: Shelley Guthrie Tiffany suggested moving the text up higher on the page and several others agreed. I made that change. Lacey-Ann Dennis suggested aligning Elder Scott’s name on the left. I aligned it on the right, because that is where I have always seen author’s names aligned. Alex Macfarlane suggested putting a slightly transparent box between the body copy and the picture so the text would be easier to read. I did that. Cheryl Meinen noticed the title wasn’t vertically centered. I set the Paragraph Before and After spacing to zero.
I found this photo searching Google Images. I loved the bright colors and the single eye of the tiger showing. I wanted to find a strong message to go with it. When I found this one by Elder Richard G. Scott, I knew it was the message I wanted. I feel the tiger has a double meaning. It takes a person with the “eye of the tiger” to have the conviction to change a bad habit, addiction, or sin. But I also liked how he compared that change at first to caging a tiger. This tiger is beautiful, strong, courageous, and dangerous. The strong and courageous part can beat any challenge. This was all pretty new to me. I had done different parts at different times, but had never done a typography project before. I’m a grandmother and am fairly new to this in-depth usage of a computer. So changing from a pdf to a jpeg was new. Unzipping files and figuring out how to find them and even worse how to upload or download them was a huge challenge. I had never put a transparency behind text before. Aligning was a challenge at first. It took me several hours to make the project and several more to fix what was wrong. The help from my peers was invaluable! I am pleased with the finished product.
Body Copy: Gill Sans MT Bold/Sans Serif
