Vue project 1003

Using provided photography can be a pain in the neck. Sometimes you just have to use it and go on. I think the designer did a fine job here, but the subhead and the headlines at the bottom are in conflict. The original designer dealt with it by putting the main head and subhead on a slant. I separated the education head completely -- made it look like a special section or something special.

As for the logo, it's another kind of retro look. The typeface is Ribbon and it could not look more 1950s. I like it.

Also upped the sepia tone on the photo and used cowboy-ish type for the headline treatment.

Update: I've put a more realistic newsprint background on my design.
