As a layout editor, one of the assignments each week is to design the layout of the newspaper spreads. For each page, I must take into consideration the layout of the article, the title, and any photos or illustrations that accompany the article.


Photostories are another type of spread that layout editors design. These are part of the photo section of the newspaper and my job is to create an aesthetic layout for the photos that highlight a certain event while also placing captions that accompany the photos to create the story. Photostories typically take up an entire spread as opposed to a single page for articles.
