  • What about demographics - how do they relate to the audience and its needs
  • Is it a technical audience/newsletter - how would this impact on design?
  • Is it an audience of creative/artistic people - how would this impact on design?
  • Does the newsletter and requirements lend itself to a specific shape?
  • What shapes might work well - full A4 or A5 or tabloid size

basic considerations2
Basic Considerations
  • Columns - reflective of type of content
  • Page one the most important story and your best photo or graphic
  • Pages three five and seven, have important stories eg page 3 more important than five and five more so than seven.
  • Pages 2,4,6,8 are reserved for less important information - as people are supposed to read right hand pages before left hand ones.
basic considerations3
Basic considerations
  • Graphics and photos need to be handled carefully, they must relate to the copy but add to the story it tells.
  • Make sure your graphics and photos are placed in the same module as the story they relate to , don't put a story one page one and its photo on page four.
