Redesigning ‘The Optimist’

One of the largest projects I did in Communication Design was redesigning the university’s newspaper, The Optimist. The new print edition was 11×17 inches,  and I had to design two different front pages.

I was told that I could write my own stories for the new design, or use stories that have already been printed. I wrote one of the stories on my first front page. I also wanted to personalize my front pages by adding things that I believed would be useful in our new design: a section for coupons and classifieds, and plugs for The Optimist‘s YouTube page.

Here are the links to see my front pages:
