Video: Improving cover design

AT NEWSPAPERS, we really don’t do cover pages, do we? Or…do we?

How about that football tab?

Or the special advertising section for Memorial Day?

Or that feature front on New Year’s Day?

OK…yes…we do cover design.

So, here’s a piece—using the front of a photo magazine—on how you can do it better.

I like the way this video breaks down the steps in the process. And one of the things it stresses has long been a principle I teach others: You create a better design by what you take away…not what you add.

Watch. Learn. Enjoy.
