MetadataShow full item record
This study examined the visual content of the front page of Hur- riyet, a Turkish newspapers. Nineteen issues of Hurriyet were examined for their visual ele- ments, headlines, and info-graphics during two periods: spring and December 1990. The study also compared Hurriyet's use of visual ele- ments with generally accepted use by American newspapers. The study found that Hurriyet's front page headlines and visual elements space varied little from spring to December of 1990. The paper has changed its type-style and type-face of secondary headlines and teasers. Hurriyet used four color visuals much more than black & white. All of the info-graphics were in good shape, but were too few. Hurriyet's use of the visuals for its front page fit the American newspapers' standards. Between the two periods studied, Hurriyet changed its overall design. Its front page was more organized in De- cember than in the spring.
