Project Published 11/12/13 Last updated on 3/2/20

Newsletters are publications that are distributed on a regular basis (weekly, monthly, yearly, and so on) to target a particular audience who share a common interest. Newsletters usually cover a main topic, or theme, with various articles or advertisements related to the topic or theme. They can be used to promote products or services; to maintain relationships, as in club or alumni newsletters; to offer information to experts on a particular topic; or to offer information on a particular organization. Newsletters can be sent via e-mail or standard mail or distributed manually. In this project, students work in teams to create the theme, purpose, and content of a newsletter and to design the page layout and graphic elements with Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe Acrobat.
