When I was working on this page, I knew design would be important because the whole story revolved around the way advertisements for nicotine products use eye-catching images to target teenagers. I decided to lean in to this idea by making the main focus of the page a dominant illustration of a high-interest topic, that I knew would capture student attention. This had the secondary effect of being a clever call out to the way that the nicotine industry uses imagery to attract teens, acting as additional support to the point of my article. The image added balance to the page despite running through all of the copy because of the alignment and effective use of text wrapping that helps intuitively lead the reader through the story.
