I have been reading newspapers for 30 years now, on and off. I started with the comics, then moved to news and features. And I read the sports pages, but I admit to not being a huge sports fan.
I’ve worked for small news papers and mid-sized newspapers. I’ve shot photos, edited photos and done some page layout. Wrote a story or two, too.
I even got to witness the Society for Newspaper Design do its annual judging, which was very cool.
But I’ve never seen a page design – in a daily newspaper – quite like this.
A trapezoidal crop? A triangular ad?
sure does get your attention though, doesn’t it?? though the attention goes to the AD not they NEWS! But if it a jump, I’m not sure that is an issue.
