THE POST: A1 3.29.12

Page 01

This is probably one of my favorite pieces I have done during my time at the Post.
I created all visual elements for the center piece.

Front Pages: Chautauquan Daily


Sorry I haven’t been updating guys. I will probably be getting a lot more pages up quicker than I have been.

Also, I will probably be doing quit a bit of designing on my own within the next month or so. Stay tuned for that.

These are a couple of the front pages I have worked on for the Daily.

More to come soon.

The Chautauquan Daily: Weekend Edition 7/7-8

Sorry guys!

I’m sorry that I haven’t been updating as often as I said last post (starting to pick up on a trend). I have been working hard at the Daily and turning around multiple pages every day.

Here are the front pages for the past week or so that I have designed. There have been some super, super work, both written and designed.

The Chautauquan Daily: Weekend Edition 6/23-24/12

So, it has been a week or so since my last update.

I am currently in New York at the Chautauqua Institution (about 1 1/2 hours south of Buffalo, NY), interning as a page designer for their daily.

Our first paper for the Chautauqua season came out this past Saturday and I was responsible for front and several other pages.

Rather than posting every page I have done (and this goes for the rest of the summer), I will only post my favorites (you are welcome!). This means that I will most likely be posting one to two pages a day with brief description of the pages.

These were from the weekend and I will most likely be double posting either today or tomorrow.

Front Page: The Post 6/1/12

ImageThis page was difficult for many reasons, but most of all because of the large amount of space given for the center piece. As a result, I gave CP a lot of white space on the sides and was able to include a large graphic (maybe larger than it should have been) and a large headline.

Front Page: The Post 5/5/12


Sorry for the delay.

This is the front I did on Friday.

The topic was different for me, I am used to athletic center pieces or deaths, but this one was about Moonshining in New Straightsville.

I think it turned out well. The infographic was illustrated by me and was based of a graphic I saw on the website HowStuffWorks.

Front Page: The Post 5/18/12

ImageCompletely forgot to update this on Friday! Sorry guys! Here is Friday’s front for the Post. This was challenging because it’s a huge news story for the University (which is kind of rare) and I didn’t want it to be just another election result page so I made a large drop cap, out a blue banner over the photo (which some people liked, others didn’t), and two small graphics along with the addition of a second story covering Grad Student Senate.

Stay tuned for new work, been incredibly busy lately but should have three or four decent pages before the quarter’s end.

Front Page: The Post 4/20/12


Last night was rushed and frantic and, well, crazy. I didn’t get home until around three this morning and that wasn’t the worst part.

There is always something to tweak but in the case of last night, things had to down right change. I allowed my designers to leave earlier (I believe the last designer left at midnight) and told them I would fix any problems that the editors saw. Well, it turned out there were photos that needed to be replaced and stories that needed to move pages. So, after switching photos out and changing stories, it was about two or so.

I noticed my editor didn’t want to stay there all night (which is understandable) so I thought quick to end up with what you see above. I think it could have been done differently, however, I don’t mind how it turned out. It may not be my best piece of work but it will defiantly be remembered to me as the quickest turn around.

Front Page: The Post 4/13/12


This one was a doozie.

This weekend is the Post Reunion, meaning every Post alum returning to Ohio U for the weekend will be looking at this issue. Talk about pressure.

My goal for this front was to fit as much as possible while giving CP a large amount of space to shine. Let’s not even talk about how our jump page turned out (I made a joke to my editor about it looking like the NYTimes).

I went with the blue after my editor thought the bars had a money value when in fact the bars deal with student applications and attendance. The color blue was chosen because it simply looked the best.

We will see how the alums take it, but I think it turned out well. There is a large amount of content but the graphic components of the center piece balance it out well.

Stay posted! Get it…

Front Page: The Post 4/6/12

So last night was sort of difficult, sort of not. The length of the stories were so short that it was hard to not run every single story on front (leaving the “jump” page empty). After awhile of playing around with it I got all the stories to fit on both pages.

My next concern was the lack of art on the page. In my opinion it still looks incredibly text heavy, however, the way it turned out was one of the best possible ways to do it (in my opinion).

My editor and I were trying to decide whether the white space bellow the headline of the center piece story (Herman Cain). I wanted to keep it, she wanted to get rid of it. What we decided in the end was that because it was such a text heavy page, the little bit of white space give CP a little bit of breathing room.

On a side note, I am working on getting through the first couple weeks of the quarter, so you may have to wait a couple more weeks for Jake Newton originals (wink!).
