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.
A student-run survey of Manchester elementary schools turned up some fun statistics from which I developed this A1 centerpiece package.
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.
I rarely use black & white on my tab covers, but when you get a photo like this of Max Raabe, who’s channeling a pre-war German cabaret singer, B&W is a no-brainer. All I needed to find was a suitably art-deco font to make one of my favorite covers.
People love pet stories, and they had to love this one about NH’s official state dog breed, the Chinook, making its debut at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show. Fun story and photos by Shawne Wickham, with a fact box I pulled together from a little web research.
A wire service feature included some nice art and presented the opportunity for a headline that works on two levels.
James Haller is credited with starting the restaurant revolution that turned Portsmouth, NH, into the per-capita dining capital of northern New England. Having grown up in Portsmouth, and having witnessed the first phase of the city’s transformation, I got a great nostalgia trip from Gretyl Macalaster’s feature.
For the page, I didn’t have a lot of art to work with, so I did some creative coloring in homage to Haller’s landmark restaurant, the Blue Strawbery.
File photos of shoppers, shopping carts and parking lots were the only art options for the story about Target’s cyber security breach, so I decided to build our centerpiece and its headline treatment around the retailer’s iconic logo.
