There’s a brilliant conceptual centerpiece on the front of today’s Lafayette, Ind., Journal & Courier:
- A question headline — normally, I hate question headlines. But this one is very effective.
- A wonderful typographical treatment on said headline.
- What appears to be a little piece of stock art.
- Lots of white space.
- Nice decks on the two stories below.
This would have been designed in Gannett’s Louisville design studio. If anyone there can fill us in about details — who designed it, how it came to be — please share.
This is the same paper — and the same design studio — that produced this page, back in January.
That, too, was stock art. I sent out several messages at the time trying to get details but came up empty-handed.
Both pages are great examples of how to build powerful, powerful work using stock images. Kudos to the kitchen staff.
Average daily circulation of the Journal & Courier is 25,531.
That page image is from the Newseum. Of course.
