The Newspaper Editor As Graphic Strategist. ANPA News Research Report No. 27.
Garcia, Mario R.
This report discusses the graphic strategies available to editors for positioning the day's news. The purposes of the report are: (1) to introduce those in charge of designing the newspaper page to the structural approach to design (the structural approach is defined as incorporating horizontal and vertical structures in the available spaces, while creating visual order), and (2) to provide several graphic strategies that will allow the designer flexibility and functionalism in a variety of design problems. Headline alternatives, the use of white space, borders, and quotations are a few of the strategic tools discussed in detail. Approximately half of the report consists of illustrations of the various strategies suggested. (AEA)
