  • 5. One of the major trends in newspaper design is to arrange elements in rectangular modules , which assist the designer in packaging the stories on the page.

  • 13. Everything else on the page is also “packaged” in modules with related elements.
  • 14. Modular design begins with a dummy sheet with the modules drawn in.
  • 15. The individual modules are then “built” using text, headlines, art/photos and white space.
