Their best

On days when you have good front-page art, the wind is at your back. You feel the sun in your face and all is right with the world. But what about those other days, when you would do anything for better photos?

Well, Tuesday was one of those days for the famed Washington Post.

The photo of our president at the United Nations is effective and helps tell the news of the day, but it hardly jumps out of the rack. On a day like this, a good newspaper leans on composition. Note the way designers varied weight of headlines, how they went big with the art they had and expertly complemented it with smaller photos below.

This is a clean layout that signals a serious news report.
