Canon City Daily Record: Sports Front - July 24, 2014
Notes:
This is a story about a big figure in Colorado football stepping down. Bitter-sweet for avid fans, and a story I felt needed a simple design. So rather than going big and bulky with a headline, I thought a simple, almost understated headline would do the job better. Plenty of white space makes it work.

Notes:
For a story about three players, I always like to get them all on the front if possible. No need to play favorites. So here I decided on a bit more … designed photo package, getting rid of the dead space by stacking the photos a bit.
I liked the way the headline and tint screen allowed it to all flow into one cohesive design element.

40 years after the start of court-ordered school busing in Boston, Meghan IronsShelley Murphy, and Jenna Russell speak with students, teachers, cops, bus drivers, and others involved about the first day. Design by Dan Zedek with photos from the Globe archives from 1974 and by Lane Turner of the participants now. Online, a fantastic interactive gallery and oral history by Elaina Natario and Russell Glodenberg, along with a powerful documentary by Scott LaPierre at http://bostonglobe.com/busing

Love how the simple yellow screen serves as branding throughout the design.

Good design balances deliberate consistency with flexibility so some of the goodies will stand out. Designers serve their readers by revealing value, accelerating learning, and making content stick.
