Final Newspaper Layout design:
On the above left, I have the front cover Newspaper Layout Design which I hope to use for my final piece.
This layout uses all of the typical codes and conventions needed for a successful newspaper.
There is an even amount of space for images and text - which is what was proven best in my survey monkey.
The use of inside teasers is a good element to add to a Local Newspaper, as this urges the readers to read on, and also gives a hint as to what may be expected to find inside.
As for the use of advertisements, we decided upon placing these at the bottom of the Newspaper page - acting as a footer, so that it is separated from the story lines and images. As for the size of the advertisement section, we felt that it shouldn't take up too much of the page, as it is not seen as the most important area.
On the above right, I also have decided upon the inside page of the Newspaper Layout template that we will be using. We have chosen this particular one because there is a fair amount of text and images that can be incorporated into it, where earlier on we gathered results from our Survey Monkey where the people we surveyed said they preferred not too much text but also some images.
Using indesign, I have created the final templates of the front page and also the inside page of the Newspaper aimed for my target audience aged 19-30.
