Enterprise Publishing clips

Well, blog, it's been a bumpy ride. I moved to Blair, Neb, for a job as a new design studio's director. Three months later, I got a cold call from Gannett asking me back to be a team leader. While I am ecstatic to be going back, it was also a tough decision to make. There is so much potential here, and I was really excited to be able to create a studio from the ground up. Here are some of the cool things I've been doing in Blair in the short time I have been here. As always, click for a larger view.

I have designed three state posters for area sports teams that have made state.
This one, which ran in the Washington County Pilot-Tribune on Oct. 14, is my favorite

I've also gotten the opportunity to design a handful of doubletruck stories. The newsroom is
making an effort to produce more enterprise prices and even give them the space they deserve.
This ran Oct. 17 in the Washington County Enterprise

Reporter Tammy Bain has been working on a series called "Washington
County Unincorporated,"where she writes a piece about each of the unincorporated
towns in the county. Here's Fontanelle, which ran in the Oct. 28 Pilot-Tribune.

Here's Telbasta, which ran Nov. 14 in the Pilot-Tribune. While sometimes the limited color spaces in the paper are frustrating, they also can give some photos more of a "look." I think it works for this series. 

Enterprise Publishing also publishes a quarterly Bride Guide. This one was all about planning
your wedding on Pinterest. I had fun with it, for sure.  It ran in the Pilot-Tribune on Oct. 7.

There are also a number of special sections I got the opportunity to design. Here's the Holiday Gift Guide.

The Retirement Lifestyles tab runs quarterly, and one of them published in October.
And of course, there are the actual news pages. Even though this fatality story really shook the community, I think the display on 1A was really simple in capturing the story. It ran Oct. 17 in the Enterprise.

Here's a cool out-of-the-box design I did for the sports cover that ran in the Enterprise on Nov. 14.
Now that you've seen what I get to do at Enterprise Publishing, wouldn't you want to be a part of it? They're hiring someone to take my place, and it could be you! Here's the job post.
