Happy New Year everyone! I am designing layout for a page with specific dimensions. I was about to use Microsoft Word 2007 until I was told Microsoft Publisher is more suited for it as it can convert colors to print-ready colors. Anyway, I am beginner and wanted to know how would you usually go about designing layout. Since I want to have 2 small elements placed on top and bottom, do I first try concept on my own sheet and then define dimensions and placement? I am designing it for notebook that will be printed in quantities. Would love your take on designs on image attached. Which would you go with? Cheers!
