Abstract

As a concept designer for Hearst Corporation's first iPad news app, the author developed solutions for displaying vertical photographs in the tablet format -- just as they have been authoritatively published in traditional news print designs. This thesis also reveals that the lack of vertical integration in newspaper home page design has been widely unaddressed, according to media experts. This formative period of tablet design has provided the author an opportunity to advocate for the vertical photograph's vital role in photojournalism.
