A few questions raised, after our first class. First, I might be exaggerating a bit, but I wasn’t sure that graphic design does really apply to newspapers, which consist of mostly colorless photos and written words, until I had our first class. I used to think that both graphic design and news design only apply to magazines and advertisings, which we enjoy seeing their visual messages. Still, based on the definitions of graphic design and news design we went over in class, I’m not sure that newspaper publications are really following those categories. I might don’t understand the concepts of graphic design and news design yet, but I know this would be my final assignment, which I have to and I will figure out at the end of the class.
Also, I’m curious that if newspapers adopt more graphic design skills, people will be more willing to read newspapers than now in the future? I can’t imagine visually written newspapers, but I think this could be a great challenge in the newspaper industry. As I take this course, I believe my curiosity will be solved at the end.
