MICHAEL SMITH is one of our “frequent flyers,” and it’s always a delight to see his pages. I’ve held these for a few weeks to let others get a shot at our time but here are Michael’s most recent contributions.
A quick note from Michael is placed beneath each page.
A great designer I know at The State (Columbia) said during weeks you don’t have great photos, then “it’s time to design.” My solution was to design a large graphic that illustrated the story. The graphic is one big PDF file.
Every now and then I’m lucky enough to get an open section front. On this week, I got my open section front on a big sports week – the state track meet. I took full advantage with large photos and large headlines.
So…what are your thoughts? Does Michael have a couple more super pages here? Is there something you ‘d have done differently?
