Well, this is awkward.

There have been some interesting juxtapositions of images, editorial and advertising since the Costa Concordia ran aground last Friday off the coast of Italy. One of which includes the Belfast Telegraph’s front page on Monday. A dream holiday, indeed.

 Though, my personal favourite (and I should note that I use this language in a highly ironic sense) is Monday’s front page of The Guardian. The submerged cruise ship was its lead art, and a headline about the Queen’s diamond jubilee flotilla introducing its lead story. Yikes.

Lesson learned. Sometimes it’s probably useful to take a step back and look at how your pages work together.
