Headlines with pictograms, part two

More playing with pictograms and headlines today, but trying it on a background related to the headline story for more visual effect. Another story from the Guardian newspaper, this time about a serial killer in Canada. Note to self, must choose happier headline next time.

“Pig farmer jailed for six murders” - The Guardian

Infographics Headline Pig Farmer

Fairly red, pretty dark, kinda gritty.

    This is one my favorite so far ;) Background matches it perfectly.

    Glad you like it! I think it works better than the other ones as I took away the white stroke.

    My only worry with this one is you may have chose a too dark red. Especially around the edges - the far right and left icons are quite difficult to see.

    I thought that myself at first, and I tried it in various degrees of red, brown, and orange. I ended up with the darkest red because of the subject matter of the headline. Murder is a pretty dark and brutal crime to commit, hence the really darkness.

    You should definitely make that dynamic :) That’d be my favorite news site :)

    If you want help with that, let me know ;)
