GONZALEZ-DIEZ, Laura; PUEBLA-MARTINEZ, Belén  and  PEREZ-CUADRADO, Pedro. From Layout to Transmedia Narrative: A Review of the Concept of "News Design". Palabra Clave [online]. 2018, vol.21, n.2, pp.445-468. ISSN 0122-8285.

News design exists, but it is not the same as it was before, and neither is journalism. The purpose of this paper is to explain the concept of news design from a perspective that includes recent changes and definitions of theoretical and professional experts. As a transversal discipline, it affects a wide variety of visualizations in many different media: newspaper design, magazine design, web design, etc.; even news design plays a role that changes quickly and includes new elements. What used to be typography, images, color, and composition is now complemented by sound, videos, and interaction. More specifically, none of them constitute news design by themselves, but all of them together contribute to the way we all communicate in our daily tasks.

Keywords : Design; journalistic design; layout; web design; narrative; interaction.
