A variation of the standard two-column format uses two columns; one wide, one narrow. The wide column can feature your main story and be set in large type (usually the right side of the page). The narrow column is then reserved for a subordinate topic or group of short paragraphs set in smaller type (usually the left side of the page).
The nameplate generally goes across both columns at the top of the page. If you are adding photos or artwork, they should only go across one of the two columns.
