NEWSPAPER DESIGN AND LAYOUT

The mockup creation and computer layout of modern corporate newsletter or advertising paper

Modern society places very high demands on the information. It is not enough for a newspaper to be the source of facts and data as it was before. The information has become a product which has to be presented properly in the world, rich of various mass media. People choose one or another media product according to its exterior appearance as well. That is why design is so important for media. However, it is a big mistake to think that design is nothing more than “expensive wrapper”! Its role is special and is closely associated with the content. Good design is imperceptible.

ORDER
We invite you to discover the details of newspaper layout and design.
Process
Depending on whether you have a prepared design and template or they have to be created from the ground up, some steps will vary or will be missing at all.
Discussion

At the first stage we discuss the project with you in detail to understand what exactly and in what form you want to obtain. It will not only save your time but allow avoiding mistakes in the future.
Layout
creation
Logo. It is the main and integral part, the face of every company and printed press in particular. We will create unique and recognizable logo which will specify the style of your newspaper. What is more, it is possible to improve the existing logo.

Format. Scores of various formats which differ in dimensional features (width and height) are used today. It is quite logical that the larger the size the more content will be placed on the page. Nevertheless, the choice of one or another format should depend on your wish, printing office resources, media traditions in your region, and, primarily, on your newspaper type (subject). For example, the most popular newspaper formats are Tabloid (230 x 480 mm), Broadsheet (375 x 600 mm), Scandinavian (400 x 570 mm).

Printed page format. In other words, it is determination of margins from page border. Remember, that white space elements – “blank spots” – are the most important for ease of information perception.

Font design. The newspaper information is visually transferred by means of printed text. Its readability depends on the font. Correct and reasonable font usage ensures that your message will reach your reader.

The system of running titles, service margins, and structuring elements helps your reader to orient himself in the newspaper and to find quickly the necessary information.

Modular grid creation. The system of cross lines and blocks arranges and aligns the elements on a printed page.

Styles creation. Modern layout software allows creating styles of text and graphic objects of the newspaper. By means of this, it is possible to create a unified template which will assign the consistent graphic style to all newspaper issues.
