In our History of El Salvador class we were assigned to choose a month and a year between the 1950s and the 1970s and create a new cool and innovative newspaper that re-envisioned everything from the layout to the news articles and advertisements.
We chose 1969 because it was an amazing year not only for El Salvador but for the world as a whole. We chose july because two really big events happened in that month: the US won the space race and our country, El Salvador, got involved in a very brief but important war with a neighboring nation (Honduras).
These are some of the newspaper spreads. All of the layouts were designed by William Cruz.
