Rockford Squire Newspaper Spread 4/9/20


This was a two-page spread of the front page and inside page in one of the newspaper issues I have made during my time working at The Rockford Squire. These pages were extra special to me because I wrote the top story for that week!

What I do when making newspaper pages:
My job as a graphic designer at The Rockford Squire consists of making advertisements and in this instance, making newspaper pages. I design a blueprint of where all the ads are going to go in the newspaper then I use that to make the page itself in InDesign. The goal is to fit as much copy as I can on the pages while still having fairly good sized article photos and plenty of room to breathe between the ads. The pages vary greatly depending on what articles we have to run and if they have their own special format or not.

Tools Used:

Adobe InDesign, Adobe Photoshop

Having trouble reading/viewing text and details?

  • On your computer:  All images can be expanded when clicking on them, however, if it’s not enough, right click on an image, then select “Open Image in New Tab” in the sub-menu that pops up. Once in the new tab you can click the image and zoom in with a much greater scale.
  • On your phone: Use your two fingers to pitch the screen and zoom in with ease.
