Following the success of its Fall preview edition, the Oregon Daily Emerald student newspaper decided to welcome students to campus with a beefy, four-color Fall orientation edition with supplementary sections for Community and University content. Like before, my approach was to splash photo-based graphics across each cover page.
The lack of good photos in the newsroom archive, however, led to a photoshoot with one of the writers to capture some meaningful scenes. Similar to work on the Fall Preview edition, I inked the scenes on Clearprint over a light table. For the shading and color, I then inked three separate overlays which could be converted to different dot screens by the Copy Camera.
