Type is only one aspect of graphic design. While newspapers depend on type to tell the verbal story, other graphics are also used to bring the story to life. In addition to type, designers use:

•Lines

•Screens

•Photographs/Artwork

•White space

Designers use type, lines, screens, photographs/ artwork and white space to create all types of graphics which help to illustrate the publication in a variety of ways:

Maps

Graphs

•Information graphics, or infographics, as they are commonly called, are used to present information in a pleasing, easy-to-see way. •Maps, charts and graphs can present potentially dull, dry facts in a more appealing way than just listing them in a story. •Research has shown that more people look at graphic illustrations and photographs than read the articles accompanying them, so it makes sense to use these tools to present important facts.
