My Style Model –The Evening Chronicle
■ Like I did with my cover I used the Evening Chronicle as my Style Model for my Page 2
■ I used the Evening Chronicle as a style model again because it is a well-respected
newspaper in the North East and has a large following.The articles themselves attract
a variety of different readers and the pages are well laid out.
■ I used similar page measurements toThe Evening Chronicle, to ensure that it looked
like my style model.
■ Both page headers are similar and include the same features.
■ Both pages included social media links, the page number, newspaper name and issue
■ It was really important that I included those features to exploit the general convention
of local newspapers.To also attract a younger audience and to encourage synergy it
was best that I included social media links.
■ Like the evening chronicle I included a contents bar which included what was
in the newspaper and general contact details for those different departments
that form the newspaper for example the photography office.
■ I followed the same style by using two different shades of the same colour. I
used the colour green as those were the colours that feature on the
masthead of the cover bar, hence creating a house style.
The Article and Image
■ The article itself was similar to the chronicles, I had the
same number of columns that the Chronicle did. I also
placed the image in the same location, however there is
a difference in size, this was so I could make the article
fit to the page.
■ I believe that the image was suitable for the article and
followed the same style the one in my style model did,
by showing the ‘celebrity’ in their ‘prime’ rather than
■ The article itself is similar to those that do feature in
the chronicle,The version that I was looking at spoke
about the life of a NUFC football player before their
death mine focuses on the life of a North East singer.
