After the historic comeback the Patriots staged in Super Bowl LI, putting this page together the next day for the Union Leader was a good way to make sure I actually saw what I thought I saw.
This was as close as I’ve come to sportswriting (the craft for which I spent 4+ quality years at UNH) in 30 years.
It got pretty good reviews. (High-resolution prints of this and other Super Bowl pages are available at UnionLeader.com/patriots.)
With 15 candidates to date in the Republican field for the New Hampshire Primary, we thought it would be fun to give readers a chance to see how many of them they could identify by sight. This was our A1 centerpiece on a slow visuals day; the only other art on the page was (you guessed it) another mugshot.
This A1 centerpiece was all about the high-end real estate market in NH. I did the design as well as the graphic showing the number of $1 million-plus listings in each region of the state, along with the towns in each region with the most.
Matt Dion disappeared after his family home went up in flames in March 2014, shortly before his parents’ strangled bodies were found inside. He was captured 14 months later in Florida. My map highlighted the few places Dion was known to have been while on the run.
Pizza? Manchester school kids love it — as long as it isn’t made in the school cafeteria. I did this infographic for an A1 centerpiece from a survey conducted by Manchester third-graders.
A student-run survey of Manchester elementary schools turned up some fun statistics from which I developed this A1 centerpiece package.
For a story on a relative warmup during a tough winter, I pulled two weeks’ worth of high temps and maximum sustained winds to chart what the wind chill factor would have been if both highs had occurred at the same time. (And frankly, the hypothetical was pretty much the reality most days.)
A tough winter had a few bright spots, like this package I designed with my infographic, my headlines and a great photo by Dave Lane.
This was my solution for comparing two years worth of unemployment fraud cases. The bottom half of each bar is solid to denote the total dollars involved, while the top half is segmented into the number of cases, according to the dollars involved in each case.
I took an infographic approach to this year’s comparison of cost trends of different types of home heating fuels.
