A few minor points: - use MORE italics - use more varieties of font, esp impact and hattenschweiler - vary text size loads to fit pages, if there lots of space on a page, make the text massive, or blow-up the pictures - if an image is really grainy or pixellated, just shrink it a bit, people won't notice it as much - try slipping a '4' into random words to excite the reader and keep them on their toes - include references to non-existent articles - this will freak out the reader like they are reading a sexy airport novel or crime thriller These are all tips from a group I used to be in, propaganda & publications A-Z, 'So You Want to Do A Fuckin Workin Class Paper?' This is definitely one of the best publications anarchists are producing (Resistance included ;) )...The graphics and layout really work. Great stuff. I don't really see the point of AF or SolFed in the UK producing their own organs either. I love the way "organ" sounds way more dirty than "newspaper", but guess who said the above statement on the exact same day the newest Catalyst came out? http://www.anarchistblackcat.org/viewtopic.php?p=74279#p74279 Still tho, that's what we get for adapting the "Lenin model of the party"... It looks great, is this the first issue with this layout? Massive improvement on the last issue I saw (back in '08) This is the third issue as an 8-page tabloid, the other two should be in the library here as well. ncwob Still tho, that's what we get for adapting the "Lenin model of the party"... tbh, Dundee's just pure 'no u' bait. things that are not Leninist; a new workers party, a political group entering others to take leadership positions, brutally fucking up 'competition' in the name of anti-sectarianism. Things that are Leninist; producing an organisational newspaper - the definitive feature of Leninism. Just to clarify Asher, Catalyst became a newspaper after Organise! did The Leveller. Sort of keeping up with the Joneses ;) Haha, nice work Organise! then :P I have a copy of The Leveller in my room - tbf it isn't as pretty as this Catalyst but the content is pretty good. I espec liked the article (which I think you wrote Choccy?) on assessment in schools. Just printed out a copy.....to be read. Haha I know the person who came up with the name "Catalyst"... haven't read this yet, but if someone could post up decent individual articles as text versions in the library that would be cool, that gets more readers from Google etc I like the layout & style of this - looks very good what do you use to do it? MS paint or something like that? I've put a load of the main articles up as separate news posts.
