Leavenworth Times Newspaper Redesign Final

Here is the PDF for my newspaper redesign. I included full page versions and the browser experience. I think this is successful in that I stuck with the brand essence for this site and I made things clear and easy to understand without cluttering the page with information. I think there is a good sense of hierarchy and that the typography is well treated. I used Karmina for the headlines and Acumin Pro for the body copy. The colors were really difficult to settle on so I'd say that's an area where I may be less confident but I enjoy the airiness and the cleanliness of this particular color palette. It seems more universal to me than a bold blue or red that news websites are traditionally adorned with. I'm really glad we had this project because I think I was able to hone my skills with the grid and the delivery of information visually.
