15 Make up Morgue A morgue is a reference file that designers use to develop their designs. For this assignment you will need: 1) 3 ring binder 2) Dividers 3) A variety of pictures from each category The morgue should begin with a typed title page and table of contents. Then each category should be divided and labeled, so that it is easy to find. You may change the order of the categories as long as it corresponds to the table of contents. The Morgue should be well-organized and neat. For each category below you will need to find 3-5 pictures. At the end of our unit all of your own designs will be added to the Morgue.
