BRIAN’S NOTE IS BRIEF: “Ed, another first from The Casket.”
I’m sure Brian was directing my attention to the video that was created at the same time as the still shots for this page. You can’t help but notice the “WATCH VIDEO” logo below the copy block here. Below the logo, the web address: “www.thecasket.ca.” I copied the address into Safari and it took me to The Casket’s opening web page. Just a bit downpage…there’s the video.
A nice job of linking print to web, Brian!
Here’s a direct link to the web page.
Some points on this photo page:
• A grouped caption creates difficulties for readers. I believe in placing individual captions below each photo.
• Good photos, well cropped.
• Nice work at photo placement.
MICHAEL ANSWERED the call to show us an election front. You still have time to do the same.
FROM MICHAEL: Hi Ed. I was up until 3 a.m. Tuesday night, so don’t pick on me too much if there are issues with this page lol! Jokes aside, our company kindly extended our normal Tuesday at 3 pm deadline so we could get election coverage in the next day’s paper. Here is how we played the election coverage. Thanks!
FROM ED: Well, you know me…always trying to find the dark cloud behind that silver lining. But in this case, I can’t find much of a cloud. The page is clean, with a compelling headline and a strong photo. I like the packaging at the bottom, though I’d have been tempted to place the weather and the UPC code in a horizontal package across the bottom.
How about the rest of you? Want us to take a look at your post-election front? Send them along!
WELL, PERHAPS not a very hot shot. But one worth examining…and remembering
