Is there a standard or way to calculate a good single A4 page construction. I know of the Van De Graaf and Tschichold page construction theory and how to apply/calculate it. But was wondering on how to do this for a single page instead of a spread.
Hope someone has the answer, been pondering about this for a while.
Increasingly, I've been shifting to horizontal layouts that work better for screen. Unfortunately, this has all the hallmarks of the "slide deck" genre and good typography is easily dismissed. Dull powerpoint slides and flashy keynotes have left a legacy.
In text-heavy PDF reports, it's great to play with page proportions without limitation. Why feel limited by standard sizes, when minor 6th (5:8) works just as well on screen?
