And for more on the work that I do with graphic design students at NUA, take a look at my post: Wrestling with a broadsheet on how the students get to grips with designing newspapers and news websites and apps. A printed newspaper may be an old medium to work with but the strict design nature of the task means that the students quickly learn all about using grids, typography and type hierarchy as well as visual storytelling, picture editing and simple clear communication.
