My News

Editorial & Advertising

Newspapers are a medium that convenes current affairs. With my three favorite colors, I used newspaper layout to introduce my temper, habit, and design statement. This work not only shows the application of basic typesetting in columns and margin but also applies the real designed print ads and posters in the design of newspaper advertising pages. The first step of this work is to think about what can best represent my personality so that both the audiences and I can understand myself better. The whole design is divided into real text and fictional text in order to highlight content.

Column x 6

Gutter:0.5cm

Margin:Top:0.8cm Bottom:0.8cm 

Inside:1.3cm Outside:0.5cm

 

Language:

The whole design is divided into real text and fictional text in order to highlight content. In terms of content presentation, I chose Chinese and English to better demonstrate my cultural background.

 

Columns:

Selecting six columns to divide a page retains the traditional and basic newspaper design, but also involves diverse layout design so that the overall the design will not be too unitary.

 

Typeface:

In the selection of fonts, English font Raleway not

only is elegant and exquisite but also has a certain degree of nifty design to make the content readable rather than being boring and monotonous. Chinese font is chosen modest LanTing Black with its echo. In terms of color, I naturally chose the most representative red, white and black.

“To be irreplaceable, a style should be unique enough.” 

The most important thing as a designer is to have a unique style. What you need to do before that is to understand what kind of message and voice you want to convey to the world through your works.
