Newspapers

Deal Spotter

A weekly section in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution promoting deals and affordable events in the metro Atlanta area. This section followed a specific template week to week. Until the section stopped running in April 2018, I was responsible for working with freelance writers, compiling content, selecting photos, editing all copy and sending pages to the press.

 

Buyer’s Edge Select

A weekly opt-in section distributed to about 150,000 non-subscribers in the metro Atlanta area. This section uses repurposed content from the daily Atlanta Journal-Constitution that focuses on home d├ęcor, style, shopping, food and travel stories. For this section, I select all the copy, redraw all the layouts, proof the pages and send everything to the press. With the exception of a column on the fornt page, this section is not templated.

 

Red & Black redesign

When the Red & Black student newspaper at the University of Georgia wanted to rebrand itself with a digital-first model, they wanted their print product to push the envelope. I worked with students and professionals on staff to give them a new template that was fun to put together, required student designers to consider color and photos along with writing good headlines, and also linked with their digital product.
