In Advanced Typography, one project was to re imagine an established publication as something different. I chose to re imagine VOX as a local newspaper. One of the challenges was how to design it well, but still look somewhat low quality, since local news papers don’t have time to spend on unique layouts due to the short deadlines in the industry. When I printed the project, I even printed it on a lower quality printer to replicate the feel of a local newspaper, since I was unable to procure the same paper sheets that newspapers are well known for.
My favorite detail was the last page, the Classifieds. I created it using the “Most Read” and “Recommended” articles that show up on the VOX website. It was an interesting problem on how to have so much type, and balancing the type sizes and leading.
