I am thrilled to learn I won four Awards of Excellence in the Society for News Design‘s 34th annual Best of News Design Creative Competition for my art direction and design work at The Washington Post. The contest invites entries from newspapers and magazines published all over the world. This year, there were over 9,000 entries. It feels wonderful to be recognized by SND, especially for work that was so much fun to do. I want to thank Janet Michaud and Chris Meighan of The Washington Post for their support and advice (The Washington Post won 38 awards total, including a gold medal for its amazing, year-long coverage of the U.S. Presidential election). I also want to thank the talented illustrators I worked with — Bomboland, Craig Alan and Shout — for their hard work on these projects. And last but not least, thank you SND judges for making my day and my year!
Here are my award-winning news design pages from 2012:
