I love to hate it

I love page design! I love to edit, do layout and think of creative, unconventional ways to present text, photos or figures.

A couple of summers ago, I worked as a journalist at a newspaper. Up until then, PageMaker had been my little helper but now, I had the opportunity to work with the layout program InDesign. I enjoyed it and sometimes I miss those times when playing with colors was actually paid work!

As I do now, when I’m editing a bunch of SPSS charts and text blocs in a Word-document. A reason as good as any to go nuts! I’m not a member of the Word Fan club and now I get a reason to dislike this witty software even more. But if this Master’s thesis of mine is ever going to be published, my struggle must continue.
