Exercise 03.03: Fibonacci Sequence


The pri­mary goal if this exer­cise is to cre­ate an InDe­sign file illus­trat­ing knowl­edge if the Fibonacci Sequence used in print.


Recre­ate the pro­vided lay­out using the assigned type­face and appro­pri­ate con­tent a the cor­rect sizes.

Background Reading

  • Kane, p 106–117
  • Bringhurst, p 45–60

Part One

Cre­ate a 11’‘ x 17’’ InDe­sign doc­u­ment using the pro­vided tem­plate file. Repeat the place hold text as nec­es­sary (includ­ing the cor­rect sizes at the begin­ning of each line), resiz­ing each line to match the cor­rect sizes for a basic Fibonacci Sequence start­ing at one (1) but illus­trated from eight (8 pts) to 144 pts. Use soft returns to fill the lines as full as pos­si­ble. Edit you entries to a max­i­mum of three lines at the larger sizes. Set the lead­ing of each to set solid.

Place a PDF and a copy of the InDe­sign file in the appro­pri­ate D2L dropbox.
