Sports Daily section covers
The Kansas City Star (2013—2014)
Along with my copy-editing and inside-page layout duties, I also designed the cover of the Sports Daily section two or three times a week. The nature of sports stories demanded charts and lists of numbers, so my main goal was to present this information in a way that was easy to read and efficient.
On nights when I designed the sports front, I was also in charge of assigning layout duties for others and setting up the page templates. This process began in the afternoon budget meeting, when the sports editors and I met to discuss which stories would run and where. As I set up the front each night, I consulted with those editors at different parts of the process to let them know the direction of my design before it was sent to press.
