Page layout | North State Journal: NCSU coach teaser

Some days, you have great art to lead a page, other days, you don’t. In this instance, we didn’t have any art that was super compelling for any of our A1 stories. One idea was to use the downpage photo as the main art, but the story didn’t merit an above-the-fold presence, so I found a way to improvise. The big news in sports was speculation surrounding who would replace NC State’s recently fired men’s basketball coach, so we pulled images of the candidates. I cut out and arranged them into a dynamic teaser which that worked with the page and allowed us to maintain the integrity of story hierarchy on A1.
