Good morning/afternoon/evening Bloggy Friends,
The fourth project in my design for journalists class was to design the layout of the front page of a newspaper. We were each given different stories, and were then asked to create either a national, local or international front page. I chose to do a national paper. One of our jobs was to cipher through the stories, to see which ones would be most relevant for the cover.
To get ideas for the layout I went to the NEWSEUM website to check out a few of the front pages across the country. I focused mainly on the San Francisco Chronicle, because it brought back memories.
I was happy with my final product. It's fairly basic, but I thought I incorporated a nice flow to the page. I also took the time to add extra elements like an index and a recycling logo. I felt very accomplished once I printed it out and turned it in. I loved getting a chance to learn these things.
Final Grade: 150/150
I hope you guys have a great weekend. We have a few exciting things planned. Our social calendar seems to be filling up now that the temperatures are getting warmer. We're really enjoying our first spring/summer in Center City.
I'll chat with you soon.
