Although my paper will be aimed at a slightly different audience i can take alot from, The Bromley Times for example the layout they used which was a five collumn layout, there use of advertisements throughout the paper including adverts of the front page. Also, there logo was placed in the top left hand corner of the page which is usually a convention for newspapers which i am likely to follow. On the front page i will have a plug for the main story with a large picture and a large bold headline to catch the eye of my audience. I choose to follow this layout as it is simple and clear, this will also suit my target audience as they will easily be able to take vital information from each article as they will also be able to find each article which they wish to look at easily which will make reading the paper more enjoyable.
My newspaper will be centered around local sport and music of young people including news on the modern lifestyle for young people with some shocking stories which i feel are important for my readers to have knowledge of, the media of today seems to be dominated by negative articles i will attempt to keep by news fairly light hearted but also containing articles which may be deemed as negative. Within my paper i will have to have relevant stories to the youth of today but it will still be fairly up-market to hopefully appeal to slightly more intelligent and educated young adults. My photography will and use of adverts will be aimed at both a male and female audience. I will ensure my newspaper covers all vital areas and conventions of an average local paper.
Below are some provisional sketches of what my newspaper may look like:
