An ongoing project, such as a periodic publication, should have recognizable design elements on every page. Headers and footers are typically used to include information that identifies the publication and guides the user through it.
In this recipe, we will look at how to create a footer that contains a graphic object, a page number, and information about the publication—its name, issue number, and date.
We will be using a standard A4 format with 210 mm × 297 mm (8.27 inches × 11.69 inches) dimensions.
For style, we will take the title example from Chapter 9, Planning Large, Long-term Projects. The font that we will use here is Optima Bold.
