Video: Improving the Design of Your Newspaper Pages

75 Minutes   $69

A 75-minute class that can make a huge difference in the way readers look at your paper

One of the consistent themes in the post-pandemic (we hope it’s almost “post) newspaper is improving design. Community newspapers are bucking the trend of metro papers and investing in growing readership, which in turn grows advertising revenue. A key element of growing readership is making the design of your paper more reader-friendly, drawing the reader rather than turning the reader away.

In this session, Kevin will cover these topics and more:

  • New design styles vs. Old design styles
  • Clean is in! Creating cleaner pages
  • Using up-to-date fonts. Getting rid of outdated fonts
  • Creating styles for your new design
  • Photo and story placement on the page
  • Elements that carry from page to page
  • Proper (and improper) use of color on pages
  • AND MUCH MORE!

Bring two pens. You’ll need them!
