PAINTING A PICTURE

A small sampling from years of designing front pages. Whether building around a photo that perfectly captures the emotion of the situation or finding an art solution when the photos of the day are underwhelming, I’ve learned there are countless ways to construct an appealing front page. The image is everything, but certain shots combine nicely with display to create a whole greater than the sum of its parts. Sometimes it’s necessary to look upside down or sideways to present things in ways they might not have been before. The daily challenge, and most enjoyable part of my job, is creating something new and enticing to pull readers in and, hopefully, keep them coming back for more.
