Journalism I Newseum Design Analysis — Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2016
In-class assignment for fifth-hour Journalism I for Tuesday, Nov. 29:
Visit the Today’s Front Pages Section of the Newseum at the following website:
Locate an example of a well-designed broadsheet newspaper front page from today in the gallery (you might look back at your Chapter 10 worksheet to review what constitutes a broadsheet newspaper).
Your front page must reflect all of the following design principles, so choose carefully:
- Proportion and/or Sequence
- Unity and/or Packaging
- Modular Design
Analyze your selected page, explaining how it incorporates each of the design principles mentioned above. In the Leave a Comment Section to the left, identify the name of the newspaper you have chosen to analyze and your name. Then, explain in 1-2 paragraphs how it incorporates the six design principles. Your analysis must be well written, well edited, and include appropriate design terminology (use the term “headline,” for example; not “title.”)
Again, do not forget your name and the name of the newspaper.
Worth: 20 points. Due today by the end of class today (Tuesday, Nov. 29)
Also, note, that your response will not automatically post to the site; I must approve it first.
