I had always wanted to experiment with more outside the box journalism and found I could use design to enable this. Using pictures and organization, a recipes page became very interesting rather than bland.
As the Advertising Manager during my junior year, I became very familiar with Photoshop and Illustrator. For the journalism fundraiser, I was able to show the design skills I learned in an ad for our website. I also designed an ad for another journalism class Mass Media in Modern Society.
Infographics are an incredibly important journalistic tool that aims to inform the reader quickly and understandably. The design of infographics is important for achieving both goals. I feel these examples show effective design, especially the infographic over boundaries as it uses post-it notes written by parents as a background.
