For the newsletter we needed to come up with the name and design an 8 page newsletter (including front and back). The professor said we needed to choose articles from a particular site and put them in our newsletter. We also had to have at least one two-page spread and create a design present throughout all the pages. I like my designs to pop and be more than just colors on the paper, so I chose paint strokes as a recurring theme throughout the pages. I also looked for free stock images to use with the articles that matched the tone of the article and was high quality. To ensure the photo and article fit well together I made sure to read the entire article and select the photo based on what kind of mood or feeling the article felt like to me.
