Dateline- This is the line at the top right hand side of a newspaper
publishing, its purpose is to let the reader know what copy or
edition they have purchased. It is very formal and has started to lose
its meaning over the years as many papers have stopped doing it
and focusing on online rather than text based.
Page Numbers- These are found in both magazines and
newspapers, they are used to indicate whether something is on
a certain page and found in many at the edges of the page such
as the bottom right hand side. It depends on the actual media
product to where they are located and positioned. The purpose
is so it can help you get around the product easier.
Grids are used to separate the parts in an article. Layout is
very important when looking at media products as it is how
the image is seen which makes the decision on whether
someone reads it. Therefore having grids to separate the text
is helping the reader and making the work look professional at
the same time.
Columns- these are very common in
newspapers as they can make a large
amount of text look less then there is
to read. It is made so it can help the
reader’s eyes to flow down the page.
The orientation of the paper is portrait rather than a
double page spread found in the magazine which as
landscape. This is seen as a typical page in a newspaper
with the title, column text and an image.
Cut-out. The image’s background has been
cut out so it can fit the style of the
newspaper. The Black border used is also
used to separate the image from the large
amount of text.
