  • 4. For this task we had to make a tabloid layout for our article. I started off with adding the copy to the right side of the page and adding the masthead to the top left, I kept the fonts the same as I did on the broadsheet front page as I though the font was effective and made it stand out. As the copy did not all fit I wrote ‘continues of page 4’ at the bottom to tell people there is more.
  • 5. I then added the image of Tupac to the left side of the page taking up most of the room, I made the image big so before people read the copy they know who the article is about. I kept the image black and white as I think it looks more effective and better than it would in colour, also because the article is not a pleasant one as its about death, I thought maybe keeping the colours dark could show this as things in colour seem happy and I didn’t want people to think this article was a happy thing.
  • 6. I added a date line to the front page as every newspaper has one and I forgot to put on in at the start, I also found a voucher online and decided to put it on the front page, however after looking at the design I thought it was too boring and did not look like a professional paper at all so I decided to change most of the things and the layout of it all to make it look like something you would see in shops.
  • 7. After looking at the layout I did first, I thought it looked boring and not something that you would see in the shop when looking at other papers, so I decided to get a picture of The Sun newspaper logo to put onto my layout because I do not think mine was any good. I also made the writing slightly bigger and tried to make it the same height as the image used. I kept the date line on the paper because I thought it was important and I placed it just underneath the masthead which I think works well. I also made the image smaller and positioned it further down the page, so I could fit in the headline and make that bigger so it catches peoples attention.
  • 8. I also noticed that most tabloid papers include the latest sport news and because Ronaldo is quite big I decided to take an image and write about what pages people can find it on. However I think I might add more football pictures to the front page because I still think it looks quite simple and boring. Also after I have positioned the header underneath the masthead I still think there might be more white space than intended but I think if I had more sport images I think it would fill it nicely.
  • 9. I also wanted the copy to look more interesting and more appealing for people to read, so I decided to add a drop capital to the start, this was to make it more effective and stand out more. I also spaced out the letters more where it says ‘Latest sport news’ I did this because I thought it would be easier to read at a glance and most people who read papers like The Sun are into sports so by making it clear there are 7 pages of sport may appeal to some people more than others. I also made the red box where the masthead is a little bigger so I could add the dateline and the price just underneath and keep the text white as I think it works well with the red background as it makes it easier to read and the price is stated clearly.
  • 10. I decided to change the image of Ronaldo on the top right because I wanted to make it seem more interesting so I also got a picture of Gareth Bale to position there as well. I also added the headline for my article which is simple but tells people what has happened. I made the font large so it is easy to read far away and also Haettenschweiler as this font makes the headline stand out more, however I still think this front page looks simple and boring as it has too much white space.
  • 11. I decided to create a whole new layout for the tabloid style paper. I chose The Sun papers masthead as this paper is quite popular and their masthead is clear and easy to read and the colours they use work well. I then created a black box for the centre of the page where I positioned an image of Tupac along with the headline, I made the headline white as I thought this stood out more against the black box, I also created a white box where I would put the copy and placed this to the right of the image. Also because Tupac was such an inspiration to some people I thought his date of birth to the date he died would put good to add to this page, so I wrote this is read to stand out again the white background and also made it centred which I think looks better than having it to the left. After I did all this I realised the top right of the paper was plain, so I went onto TMZ for some celebrity news as that is what most tabloids include and did a section on Chris Brown and also included what page would have the whole story on. I then added the dateline and the price and then a barcode.
