Newsletter Assignment

The latests project my class has been working on has been a newsletter. We had to find an organization we were interested in and make a newsletter about it. So basically we wrote three articles and created a layout for the organization.

This assignment was pretty tough. I wasn’t the article, but the layouts. I think it is hard to build it up in your head and even when you have a vision about what you want, it probably will change. I changed mine quite a bit, but I was happy with the outcome. Another thing that’s a little tough is deciding fonts. Since this was such a big body of work I wanted my headlines to reflect style but not be too crazy. The body of the articles I wanted to be easy on the eyes and clean. Here is a look at what I was able to come up with:


And here’s a look at my dummy layout, you’ll notice my final is nothing like the layout:


For inspiration I searched numerous Pinterest boards and finally found one that I liked. I wanted my newsletter to look modern and not like the average newspaper look. So I found a magazine looking newsletter that had three columns instead of the traditional four. This was really challenging for me, but I liked how it turn out. Heres a look at my inspiration:
