SO…HOW DO YOU DO A TEXT WRAP that’s so bad it makes your teeth hurt? Thanks to my colleague Doug Fisher, here’s a look at one example. This comes from The State, in Columbia, SC.
A widow…really bad word spacing…well, not something I’d wanna put in my portfolio.
I begin to despair that page assembly people (no designer did this!) will ever get the idea that really bad word spacing makes the newspaper look sloppy.
Does anyone out there want to try to defend this?
SCOTT SENDS US A LOOK at the progression in the design of The Cherokee One Feather front page over the past couple of years. Quite a bit of difference between the first and the last. I’ve numbered them, with corresponding dates. I have no evaluation here…just offering these for you to take a look, with thanks to Scott for sending them along.
Dates of the pages:
1) JAN 2, 2008
2) JAN 7, 2009
3) DEC 15, 2009
4) JAN 7, 2010
5) NOV 4, 2010
6) NOV 11, 2010
So…any thoughts to share with Scott?
