Untangling Printer Spreads

Design, Printing

One thing that I had noticed that I do differently is how I figure printer spreads for books. I call it “The Ladder” and just recently had to show some fellow designers how to place single page pdfs into printer spreads. They picked up on it quickly and I thought I would share it here as well.

Everything from accessibility, to visual hierarchy, falls under this umbrella of UX (User Experience). Usability test are the norm in UX, and all other facets of business could stand to learn a thing or two.
